The Houses of Parliament, Sunset - Claude Monet

The London Parliaments series is a set of paintings by the impressionist painter Claude Monet between 1900 and 1904. It was mainly observed by the painter from a terrace of St. Thomas Hospital located on the opposite bank of the river, near Westminster Bridge. An unreal and ghostly silhouette, the Parliament appears like an apparition. The stone architecture seems to have lost all consistency. Sky and water are painted with the same tones, dominated by mauve and orange. The brushstroke is systematically fragmented into multiple colored spots, to render the density of the atmosphere and the mist.

The artist

Oscar-Claude Monet est né le 14 novembre 1840 à Paris. Mort en 1926 à Giverny, il marquera de son œuvre le début du 20ème siècle. Claude Monet est considéré comme l’un des plus grands maîtres de l’impressionnisme. Son goût pour la lumière et son obsession de la couleur lui ont permis de réaliser des œuvres majeures appréciées à leur juste valeur. En avril 1874, la « Société anonyme coopérative des artistes peintres, sculpteurs et graveurs » organise une exposition qui va offrir de nouvelles perspectives à l’art moderne. Claude Monet y expose son œuvre Impression, soleil levant. L’exposition n’est en réalité pas un franc succès. Voulant se moquer de l’œuvre citée, le journaliste Louis Leroy qualifie l’ensemble des artistes d’« impressionnistes ». Le terme d’impressionnisme prend alors un sens nouveau.
