Between 1863 and 1865, Monet worked in the style of Courbet and the realist school, but he was haunted by the idea of writing songs in the open air. The most famous of the works of this time, named as Edouard Manet painting, Luncheon on the Grass (1866, Moscow, Pushkin Museum), was written in the studio on the outline made in the open air. Two Seascapes Monet were exhibited and well received at the Salon 1865.

Monet died at Giverny on Dec. 5, 1926.
