Impression, sole levante or leval del sole is the painting by Claude Monet who gave his name to the Impressionist movement, to that group of artists who revolutionized classical Mannerist painting, because they wanted to paint reality as they saw it.
In Impression Claude Monet depicts a morning glimpse of the port of Le Havre, enveloped in an impalpable fog under the reddish disk of the rising sun, whose rays are reflected in the water.
