    (November 14, 1840-December 5, 1926)
    Painted Self Portrait (1866), 'Sun Rise' (1872), 'Water Lilies'
    He suffered from depression.
    After he organized a show of his and other like art that went away from conventional styles to a new 'independent' style, critics said their work was unfinished and they look like first impressions rather than completed paintings (thus calling Monet an impressionist - 1874).
    In his autobiography, he colored the truth to gain importance and have more respect than he really had (1900).
    He said: 'I want to paint like the birds sing.'
    He gave up financial rewards to be true to his painting style.
    He was interested in the effects of light on color.
    In the late 1880s, his impression paintings started selling and he made enough money to buy property.
    By 1923, he was almost blinded by cataracts.
    He donated his 12 'Water Lilies' paintings (1916-26) to France.
