Ships Riding on the Seine at Rouen, 1872-1873


Artists such as Max Liebermann, Augusto Giacometti and Lovis Corinth paid tribute to Monet's impressionist works and were influenced by them. Monet's influence, even after his death, died out with the death of Pierre Bonnard in 1947, who described himself as the "last impressionist". While the Cubists rejected Monet's works because of the dissolution of static forms, foreign painters in particular, such as Wassily Kandinsky, recognized the importance of Claude Monet for modernism.
