Claude Monet (14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) was a French painter, a founder of French Impressionist painting and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature

Through the spring, summer, and fall of 1891, Claude Monet floated a boat down the river near his home at Giverny to paint its poplars. At one point, faced with losing his subjects to a timber merchant, he purchased the trees so he could continue painting.

His Poplars on the Epte became part of a series in which Monet documented the fleeting effects of sunlight on the water, with poplars following the curve of the river single file toward the Seine.
