This is the largest in monet's series of twelve paintings of the saint-lazare train station in paris, a subject favored by many impressionist painters. While completing the series, monet relocated from the town of argenteuil to an apartment near the station in paris. He worked on all the paintings at the same time, and sometimes he leaned the stretched canvases against each other while the paint was still wet. This caused the cork spacers on the backs of the stretchers to be pressed into the adjacent paintings, creating circular indentations in the surface that are visible along the top edge of this work. Claude monet (1840 - 1926), the founder of impressionism, was one of the most influential landscape painters in the history of art. Born in paris, monet was enrolled in the studio of glenyre, where he met renoir, sisley, and bazille, who became the core of the impressionist group. Painting outdoors, he broke the tradition of portraying a subject literally by conveying the fleeting effects of atmosphere, time of day, and season upon color and light. Eliminating black and gray from his palette, he represented natural color like a prism, breaking it down into its individual components, often painting a series of the exact same view under different light and weather conditions. Monet brought the study of the transient effects of natural light to its most refined expression, ultimately becoming a forerunner of 20th century modernism.
