  • La gare Saint-Lazare | Musée historique de l'environnement urbain
    feel of the place as much as the shifting light effects in the main shed served as inspiration for a series of paintings including this one purchased shortly afterwards by his contemporary Gustave Caillebotte L auteur Claude Monet was born in Paris on November 14 1840 but stayed only five years in the French capital His parents moved to Le Havre in 1845 where they sold colonial wares As a teenager Monet showed his caricatures in local art shops which led to a meeting with Eugène Boudin with whom he began painting landscapes Monet refused to attend Le Havre school of fine arts and set off to study at the Académie Suisse in Paris where he met Pissarro and Cézanne Returning to Le Havre after completing his national service he completed his studies with Boudin and the Dutch artist Jongkind before returning to the capital and the studio of Charles Gleyre where he met Sisley Bazille and Renoir In the 1860s Monet and his friends often met Manet and Zola at Café Guerbois had their work refused at every Salon sought new inspiration around Paris and subsisted in extreme poverty In 1869 Monet and Renoir did the first paintings in Bougival featuring the visible brush strokes that prefigured impressionism The following year Monet married Camille his model with whom he already had a son Jean born in 1867 In 1874 weary of official rebuttals the young painters organized their own exhibition in the studio of the photographer Nadar where Monet exhibited Impression Sunrise the picture that spawned the satirical criticism that inadvertently gave the movement its name The 1870s were much like the previous decade Monet produced wonderful paintings yet continued to exist on the poverty line He was now living outside Paris in Argenteuil and Vetheuil where life was

  • Rue Saint Denis in Paris, Festival of June 30, 1878 | Musée historique de l'environnement urbain
    nursery rhyme featuring three key notes and it is perhaps this musical aspect that appealed to the composer from Ambert Emmanuel Chabrier who bought the picture Manet painted a piece on the same theme though filled with melancholy entitled Rue Mosnier aux Drapeaux which portrays a nearly empty street seen through the eyes of a curious onlooker Monet s approach was more aloof he did not partake in the crowd s jubilation but instead adopted a more remote yet dominant viewpoint The artist Claude Monet was born in Paris on November 14 1840 but stayed only five years in the French capital His parents moved to Le Havre in 1845 where they sold colonial wares As a teenager Monet showed his caricatures in local art shops which led to a meeting with Eugène Boudin with whom he began painting landscapes Monet refused to attend Le Havre school of fine arts and set off to study at the Académie Suisse in Paris where he met Pissarro and Cézanne Returning to Le Havre after completing his national service he completed his studies with Boudin and the Dutch artist Jongkind before returning to the capital and the studio of Charles Gleyre where he met Sisley Bazille and Renoir In the 1860s Monet and his friends often met Manet and Zola at Café Guerbois had their work refused at every Salon sought new inspiration around Paris and subsisted in extreme poverty In 1869 Monet and Renoir did the first paintings in Bougival featuring the visible brush strokes that prefigured impressionism The following year Monet married Camille his model with whom he already had a son Jean born in 1867 In 1874 weary of official rebuttals the young painters organized their own exhibition in the studio of the photographer Nadar where Monet exhibited Impression Sunrise

  • Dinner at the Ball | Musée historique de l'environnement urbain
    it was for Degas to copy this work both because of its theme and its dazzling depiction of light In 1880 La Gazette des Beaux Arts underscored Menzel s virtuosity in the rendering of light His passion for light at times spurs him to overcome great difficulties he tracks light s undulations and vibrations from every angle the way they tail off subtly their sharpness the way they glint off jutting objects their artful creation of transparency in shadows and how they transform tone by adding the clean coloration they bring with them from their sources The artist Born in Paris in 1834 Edgar Degas real name de Gas belonged to a rich bourgeois family of Neapolitan origin He did not begin his study of painting until 1855 after receiving a classical education However attracted by the Renaissance painters he left for Italy where he traveled from 1856 to 1860 He went first to Naples staying with relatives then on to Rome and Florence where he met Gustave Moreau The paintings of his youth mostly portraits of his family members are neoclassical in style Yet Degas s interest in intimist and risqué subjects cabarets theaters and bordellos his compositions inspired

  • Woman seated on the edge of the bath sponging her neck | Musée historique de l'environnement urbain
    For Degas it was an opportunity to paint three quarter and back views of the figure draw nudes without showing the face and like Bonnard after him capture the play of light on the skin through its shimmering reflection in the water But let us listen to Degas whom history was to rank among the greatest artists of his time but also as a man a misogynist reactionary and misanthrope Until now the nude had always been shown in poses that presuppose an audience But my women are unpretentious people I show them without vanity or affectation like animals cleaning themselves The artist Born in Paris in 1834 Edgar Degas a contraction of his real name de Gas belonged to a wealthy middle class family of Neapolitan origin He began formal studies in painting only in 1855 after studying law but drawn by the painters of the Renaissance left for Italy in 1856 where he traveled until 1860 initially staying with family in Naples and later moving on to Rome and Florence where he met Gustave Moreau His early works especially his portraits of family members are neoclassical in style But Degas interest in intimate and risqué subjects such as
