The BITS-PILANI QUIZZING FORUM!

Hmmm

Two paintings of the same object by an artist who created quite an impression. Identify and tell me why are they different?



Quoting Nilanjana

Monet's water lily series. He painted them during a period where he suffered from cataract. Ultimately he had his eye lens removed, which corrected the problem but allowed him to see ultraviolet light, thus the latter water lilies are painted in a more blue shade.
Cracked by Nilanjana, and well Vivek and Varun KR got it, though didnt write the whole answer, I'll give it t them. Simply mentioning Monet is not good enough, cummon guys!

Ok thiese are Water Lilies by Claude Monet, who created an "Impression" with his "impression"(super clue)
They are different because of his Catract?????(guess, a weird one at that)
