Art Quote by Claude Monet

Artist Details

Name: Claude Monet
Who: French artist, gardener, and perhaps the most famous Impressionist painter.
When: 1840 to 1926
Quote: "One is too taken up with all that one sees and hears in Paris, however strong one is, and what I do here will at least have the merit of being unlike anyone else, at least I believe so, because it will simply be the expression of what I, and only I have felt. The further I get, the more I regret how little I know, that’s what hinders me the most. I don't think I will spend much time in Paris now, a month at the very most, each year."
