"Claude Monet, whom @nytimes deemed "The Last Impressionist," died 89 years ago this week, in December 1926. A week after his death, Elisabeth L. Cary, a @nytimes arts editor in the early 1900s, wrote a glowing obituary about the impact the Impressionist #painter left on the art world. Her focus: Monet's research into the baffling problems of light. "It was this movement from which nothing in nature could escape that he followed unceasingly," Elisabeth wrote. "Of course, his goal was beyond his reach, beyond the reach of anyone: but the stubborn splendor of his battle for his idea places him among the masters for whom there can be no death." This #portrait of #Monet, taken by @nytimes in the year before his death, came from our newsroom #archives. #tbt #🎨" By nytimes on Instagram.
