Claude Monet’s paintings were quite different from the art styles that were popular in the 1870s France. Traditional artists always did their artwork in a studio and their paintings were realistic- they looked exactly like the real world. Claude Monet was part of a group of painters who were called Impressionists(印象派画家). Their paintings were light and a bit fuzzy - they gave an impression of what the real world looked like. Sometimes Impressionists worked outside, which was a very unusual thought in their time. Impressionists received its name from an early painting by Claude Monet titled Impression, Sunrise.

Knowing that trains were interesting subjects and represented modern progress, Claude Monet created a series of Impressionist paintings of trains from January to March of 1877. He worked on his paintings right on the train platform (站台)at the Gare Saint-Lazare, the train station on Saint Lazare Street. Although there were many train stations in Paris, this was the first train station built in Paris so it had historical significance(意义).

Monet’s friend, Impressionist painter Pierre Auguste Renoir, told the following story to his sons about Claude Monet and painting the trains. Monet needed permission (允许)to spend time on the train platform and paint what he saw in his impressionistic style. One day, Monet put on his very best suit along with a fine hat, a good shirt and a silk tie. He appeared to be a wealthy gentleman while he really was a poor painter.

The station master was impressed and gave Monet permission to paint on the train platform. The station master even kept trains from leaving on time so Monet could finish a scene even though passengers complained.

Was it worthy? Monet's train scenes turned his career into a success and for the station master, made his train station famous until even now.
