A LITTLE ABOUT WALL PAINTING

FRESCO
Fresco (derived from Italian. Fresco, literally – fresh) is one of the wall painting techniques. The painting is painted on wet plaster with paints diluted in water.

Monet Claude Oscar

Claude Oscar Monet was born in Paris on November 14, 1840. When the future artist was five years old, his family moved to the port city of Le Havre on the coast of Normandy, where Monet spent his childhood and early youth. At school, Monet did very mediocre in all subjects, with the exception of one – drawing, where Claude showed the artist’s innate talent, and primarily as a cartoonist. At age 15, he was already selling his cartoons and even gained some fame locally. Around the same time, Monet met the artist Eugene Boudin, who persuaded Claude to work out on landscapes, and the young Monet discovered that this was his calling. Boudin loved to write in nature, because he believed that only in this way can you capture what the artist saw in all its purity and freshness. Monet was carried away by this idea, and subsequently it became one of the cornerstones, both for the work of the artist himself and for impressionism as a whole.

Monet spends 1859-1860 in Paris, where he studies art. His student life, like the first years of his career Continue reading
