Claude Monet was an influential painter and a founder of French Impressionist painting. Monet lived between 1840 and 1926, and some of his most notable works include Impression, Water Lillies, Haystacks and Poplars. Monet mostly resided in the city of Giverny, and many of his landscape paintings reflect the nature of this area. 

The impact of his work is still felt to this day, although there are some specific artists that were particularly inspired by Monet's work. Monet himself was inspired by Eugene Boudin, Jean-Francois Millet and J.M.W. Turner. His style of painting was influenced by Realism, Neo-Classicism and Japonisme. Monet's work helped create the movements of Impressionism, Symbolism, Pointillism and Fauvism, and he influenced artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Georges Seurat, Edgar Degas and Paul Cezanne.
