Much inspired by the Japanese water gardens, Monet spent a great deal of time in his beloved Giverny. Adorned with poppies, blue sage, dahlias & irises, the waters were embellished only by the bamboos & water lilies. The pond was fed by the beautiful river Ru. Surreal weeping willows & silver birch hung over it’s edges, caressing the fronds of the greenery & blossoms below. It’s famous green wooden footbridge was built across the water & became the central creative focus of his extraordinary art. He said, “it took me some time to understand my water lilies.” So, began the journey to work on what is undeniably the most famous & fascinating series of paintings our world has ever seen.
