Impression, Sunrise is painted by Claude Monet in 1874. In this painting there are two small row boats and the red sun is the focal point of the picture. I like the color choices that make the sun stand out the most. Everything is dark. grey, and black while the sun has a vibrant look to it. I like the loose brush strokes that were used for the water. This is a beautiful hazy landscape painting which interestingly had a factor in giving the name of the impressionist movement.
