Born in Paris in 1840, Claude Monet was one of the founders of Impressionism, and the term 'Impressionism' is derived from the title of his painting Impression, Sunrise. Fascinated with colour and the changing of light, Monet travelled to a number of locations across Europe. He first arrived in Bordighera, a town in the Province of Imperia, Italy, in 1883 during a trip to the Mediterranean coast with friend and fellow painter Auguste Renoir. He returned to Bordighera in 1884 and stayed for three months. It was during this visit, captivated by the incredible blue skies, that he created this beautiful painting.
