This is a compilation of 2 different titles, which are about the following topics: 
1: Claude Monet has been the icon for the impressionist movement. Painting vague strokes of color and contrast, water, and flowers were typical. Other aspects of the art weren’t as clear but were just as important, nonetheless. Claude Monet certainly faced many struggles as he tried to build his passion for painting into a career. His family life wasn’t perfect either, but despite of all these obstacles, the French genius painter has left us a legacy and a new perspective on realism and technique in their purest forms. 
In this guide, we’ll go over his youth, his style, his methods, his most famous paintings, and many of the reasons why he made the decisions he made. Embark on a journey by diving into the world of art in the French countryside in the 19th century. Find out what made this painter so unique and beloved by so many. 
2: Picasso’s work is famous. His art is intricate yet bizarre. Many people have stood still over the wonders and simplicity of cubism and surrealism and have either been disgusted or amazed by it. 
 Picasso’s personal life was filled with struggles, but some of those were likely self-imposed. From records, we learn that he had multiple marriages, stepfamilies, and was extremely abusive in several of his relationships, dominating the women he slept with in kinky, sadistic ways. His children weren’t any better off, creating substance abuse and suicidal headlines. Despite of the dysfunctionality in his personal and family life, his artwork reflected something new and fresh. His concepts of color, contrast, and composition have inspired many.
