Monet (French mɔnɛ)
 
n
Claude (klod). 1840--1926, French landscape painter; the leading exponent of impressionism. His interest in the effect of light on colour led him to paint series of pictures of the same subject at different times of day. These include Haystacks (1889--93), Rouen Cathedral (1892--94), the Thames (1899--1904), and Water Lilies (1899--1906)
