  1. 1. Claude Monet and his painting “Water Lillies” By Graham Mackintosh
  2. 2. History of the painting <ul><li>The painting was painted in 1916 and it is based in Monet's garden. </li></ul><ul><li>Monet was 76 when he painted it. </li></ul><ul><li>Monet was struggling with Cataracts (more in next slide) while he was painting this painting. </li></ul><ul><li>The paintings are displayed all over the world in various exhibitions </li></ul>
  3. 3. Monet's struggle with Cataracts <ul><li>Around the time that he was painting “Water Lillies” He had a disease called Cataracts, this is a disease in his eyes (not very good for a painter!) and it sort of fogs up his crystalline lens in his eyes, making it hard to view objects compared to a fine working eye. Monet had this disease since he was 56. He had to live with it and still keep painting his garden (because that was the time that he liked painting his garden). </li></ul>
  4. 4. Monet Himself <ul><li>Monet first went to Paris, France, and watched painters copying from masters, he didnt want to do this though, he went to a window, and painted what he saw infront of him. </li></ul><ul><li>Monet joined the army, for a seven year agreement, but he got typhoid fever, and his aunt had to get him out, providing that he did an art class in an art school. </li></ul><ul><li>He was inspired by Eugène Boudin, Johan Jongkind and Gustave Courbet </li></ul>
  5. 5. Camille Monet <ul><li>Claude Monet painted a famous painting of a girl in a green dress, and this was a girl who would later turn into Camille Monet, who was Claude's wife. They had 2 children, and just after the birth of the second one, Camille, Claude and their two children, moved to Vétheuil, which is where Camille eventually died, with Monet painting her on her death bed . </li></ul>
