How may paintings did Claude Monet paint?

Well, in the garden of Giverny he painted more than 250 oil paintings of water lilies and the Japanese bridge. He also painted London parliament and Rouen Cathedral several times as well as several views of haystacks. So well over 3 or 400 I think.

I think more than 2000. He became very old and he painted very quickly. He also destroyed a lot when he was dissatisfied, later in his life. One quote by Monet on this subject:

- I won't be here long, I am working as hard as I can, as I told you (in a letter, fh) yesterday, I am very happy to be here and I hope to come up with something good, in any case I will bring lots of studies back with me so I can work on some big things at home.

When the family moved to Barcelona in 1896, Picasso easily gained entrance to the School of Fine Arts.

When was Claude Monet introduced to art?

Monet became interested in oil painting so someone taut him by Boudin in 1856/57. In 1862 he was a pupil of Charles Gleyre in Paris, where he met a few of his future impressionist friends, like Renoir, Bazille and Sisley.

After being impressed by Manet's Luncheon on the grass, (Dejeuner sur l'Herbe) in 1863. Claude Monet, then sumbitted his own Dejeuner sur l'Herbe Painting in 1865 withhis friends posing for him. It said to be 20 foot wide. The Salon des Refuses exhibited in the same year.

On April 1, 1851, Claude Monet entered the Le Havre secondary school of the arts. He had also undertook his first drawing lessons from Jacques-François Ochard, who is a former student of Jacques-Louis David. His other influence are some of his friends such as Eugène Boudin, who became his mentor and taught him to use oil paints.

Monet himself in his quotes on his teachers Boudin and Troyon:

One day Boudin (who inspired Monet very young already to start painting, fh) said to me,""…appreciate the sea, the light, the blue sky". I took his advice and together we went on long outings during which I painted constantly from nature. This was how I came to understand nature and learned to love it passionately.

* artist quotations from "Discovering Art, - The life time and work of the World's greatest Artists, MONET"; K.E. Sullivan, Brockhamptonpress, London 2004, p. 10 (art quotes, Monet)

…learn to draw: that's where most of you (his pupils, fh) are falling down today… …draw with all your might; you can never learn to much. However, don't neglect painting, go to the country from time to time and make studies and above all develop them…" (Monet is quoting here Troyon, famous Barbizon painter and Monet's teacher in Paris, fh)

* artist quotations from his letter to the painter Boudin, 1859; as quoted in "Discovering Art, - The life time and work of the World's greatest Artists, MONET"; K.E. Sullivan, Brockhamptonpress, London 2004, p. 11 (art quotes, Monet)
