THE MOST EXPENSIVE PAINTINGS BY CLAUDE MONET.


   Top-25 most expensive works by French painter Oscar-Claude Monet (1840-1926), one of the founders of impressionism.
    Claude Monet occupies the third line in the Rating of world's most expensive artists according to the results of open auctions held before July 2014. Auction value of 203 of his works included in Top-5000 world's most expensive works of visual art comprises $ 1 796,170 mln. The average price of Monet's works is $ 8,848 mln.

    Claude Monet was born in Paris in 1840. At the age of 11 the boy, having a taste for painting, started studies at a secondary school of arts. At the age of 16, by chance, a French artist Eugène Boudin (reputed by art historians to be a forerunner of impressionism) became the teacher of the young man and developed his first skills of working outdoors, in the plain air, and gave grounding for original vision in painting.
     In 1862 Monet was admitted to the university's department of arts, but quit it, disappointed in out-of-date approaches to painting prevailing there. Having quit the university, Monet continued training at painting studio of Charles Gleyre, where he got acquainted with Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley and Frederic Bazille. Fresh views on painting and joint work of the young artists in the plain air without finalization of paintings in a workshop lead to the formation of new art movement which in 1874 received the name of "impressionism" by the similarly-named landscape by Claude Monet "Impression, Sunrise" ("Impression, soleillevant").  
   

      Monet's life, like the lives of the most art innovators, was not easy. Paintings which were called "sheer impression-sharing" by the critics, were slow for sale, and the artist's financial position became so poor that once he attempted suicide.
     And only by 1883, after Monet's moving to a small settlement Giverny 80 kilometres from Paris, his popularity started rapidly growing, and so did his welfare. Since then Monet in his work keeps strictly following impressionism ideology: "it does not matter what is painted, what matters is how it is painted". He focuses on painting technique, on imaging of escaping moment, mood, changes of environment in different weather, at different light. The artist creates series of numerous works portraying haystacks, poplars, water lilies, Rouen Cathedral, Parliament building.
     Most paintings by Claude Monet having the highest value at present, refer to this very period of his creative activity.
