Artist's Description

An Afternoon in Claude Monet’s GardenFoundation Claude Monet, Giverny, France.

FIVE (5) Features: Going Green, ImageWriting, Nature And Man, European Everyday Life and A Garden Somewhere

Monet had always been fascinated by the play of light and reflections of clouds on water. His numerous paintings done on his floating studio, in Argenteuil or on the Dutch canals, show his fascination with inverted reflections in these liquid mirrors. In 1893, he acquires a piece of land situated at the end of the Clos Normand, on the other side of the railway line, and diverts the narrow arm of the river Epte , the « Ru ». The thus-created pond will become the « Jardin d’eau » (water garden), today present on the walls of the world’s greatest museums.

Claude Monet lived for forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, in his house in Giverny. With a passion for gardening as well as for colours, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art. Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.
