ARTIST FOR THIS UNIT
Claude Monet (1840-1926) was a French painter and the founder of Impressionism.
The term Impressionism, which was meant as an insult by an art critic, is derived from the title of his painting Impression Sunrise.
Monet and the Impressionists were obsessed with light and capturing the fleeting impression of light at certain times of the day.
Impression Sunrise, The Thames Below Westminster, and The Bridge at Giverny all hang in the hallways at BDS.
COMPOSER FOR THIS UNIT
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was an Austrian composer of the Classical Period and is often called the "Father of the Symphony" and the "Father of the String Quartet."
Haydn's visits to England generated some of his best known work, including the Surprise, Military, Drumroll and London Symphonies.
