(Impression, soleil levant) is a painting by Claude Monet, for which the Impressionist movement was named. Dated 1872, but probably created in 1873, its subject is the harbour of Le Havre in France, using very loose brush strokes that suggest rather than delineate it...Critic Louis Leroy, inspired by the painting's name, titled his hostile review of the show in Le Charivari newspaper, "The Exhibition of the Impressionists", thus inadvertently naming the new art movement.

This work is on display at the Musee Marmottan Monet in Paris.
