Posts with the painting Arrival of the Normandy Train, Gare Saint-Lazare from 1877. Impressionist artists often created tributes to the modern side of Paris where their paintings often depicted the great boulevards, elegant new buildings and modern constructions such as railway bridges and railway tracks. 

Monet's choice of motif when it comes to Arrival of the Normandy Train was a particularly fitting choice as the terminal linked Paris and Normandy - a place where Monet's ability to paint landscapes had been honed for many years.

Monet painted a total of 12 paintings of the train station and chose for this specific motif to focus on the station's construction of glass and metal, the train with and its rising steam pillars and the combination of natural and artificial light. 

The series of paintings from the train station that Monet would create was his last attempt to paint urban environments - from now on he would in principle only paint landscape motifs.

Claude Monet was born in 1840 in Paris and, together with Auguste Renoir, was one of the foremost pioneers of Impressionism and was also the one who gave name to the movement through his painting Impression. Sunrise from 1872.

Monet was close friends with another famous artist Eduardo Manet who, among other things, painted A Parisian LadyWith the help of Manet, Monet, in 1871, got hold of a residence in a suburb of Paris by name Argenteuil. After the move, Monet began one of the most productive phases of his career and created many of his most famous works.
