A photo mosaic of Claude Monet’s “The Japanese Bridge” made from images ‘cut’ from paintings by the group known as the Impressionists. The original was painted in around 1896 and along with several others depicts the bridge in his garden at Giverny.
Claude Monet was a French painter, a founder of French Impressionist painting and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement. His most well known works feature water lilies painted from 1899 at his home in Giverny.
Impressionism emerged in France in the 1870s, initially amongst Monet, Renoir, Pissaro, Sisley, Cezanne, Morisot and Degas, and later also Manet and Cassatt. The group were termed the “Impressionists” by the media following an exhibition including Monet’s “Impression, Sunrise”.
