quote
People discuss my art and pretend to understand as if it were necessary to understand, when it's simply necessary to love.
quote
Claude Monet
quote
The effect of sincerity is to give one's work the character of a protest. The painter being concerned only with conveying his impression, simply seeks to be himself and no one else.
quote
Claude-Oscar Monet
quote
Most people think I paint fast. I paint very slowly.

My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece.
quote
Claude Monet
quote
It's on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way. So we must dig and delve unceasingly.

My life has been nothing but a failure.

Happy are the young people who believe that it is easy.

quote
I am following Nature without being able to grasp her...I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.

Claude-Oscar Monet
quote
Everything I have earned has gone into these gardens.

Claude Monet
quote
No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and is sure of his method and composition.
quote
Claude-Oscar Monet
quote
I know that to paint the sea really well, you need to look at it every hour of every day in the same place so that you can understand its way in that particular spot and that is why I am working on the same motifs over and over again, four or six times even.
quote
Claude Monet
quote
For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment; but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life - the light and the air which vary continually. For me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value.
quote
Claude-Oscar Monet
quote
I can only draw what I see.

It took me time to understand my waterlilies. I had planted them for the pleasure of it

quote
Claude-Oscar Monet
quote
I would advise young artists . . . to paint as they can, as long as they can, without being afraid of painting badly . . . If their painting doesn't improve by itself, it means that nothing can be done - and I wouldn't do anything!
quote
Claude-Oscar Monet
quote
Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.
quote
Claude Monet
quote
When you go out to paint try to forget what object you have before you - a tree, a house, a field or whatever. Merely think, here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow, and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact colour and shape, until it emerges as your own naive impression of the scene before you.
