An artist’s colors of his nation

Monet_Impression_SunriseART OF BLUE AND RED COLORS FROM CLAUDE MONET.

Impression, Sunrise (French: Impression, soleil levant) is a painting by Claude Monet. Shown at what would later be known as the “Exhibition of the Impressionists” in April 1874, the painting is attributed to giving rise to the name of the Impressionist movement. Impression, Sunrise depicts the port of Le Havre, Monet’s hometown, and is his most famous painting of the harbor.

NOTE: observe how he always used the two French colors of blue and red (which at times appeared as a tiny spot but essential.)
