Claude Monet | Lo stile



Claude Monet è stato il sostenitore più convinto ed instancabile del «metodo impressionista» che vide già riassunto nelle opere dell'amico Manet. Per comprendere appieno la carica rivoluzionaria della figura di Monet, tuttavia, è necessario calarla con precisione nell'ambiente storico ed artistico francese della seconda metà dell'Ottocento.
La Francia della seconda metà del XIX secolo era una nazione viva, moderna, ricca di magnificenze e di contraddizioni, che in seguito all'offensiva prussiana del 1870 aveva conosciuto un impetuoso sviluppo economico e sociale che, tuttavia, aveva inizialmente mancato di investire le arti figurative.
