About Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge
Claude Monet’s Water Lilies consist of a series of approximately 250 paintings depicting the artist’s garden at his home in Giverny, France.
In 1893, Monet purchased an adjacent lot and transformed the site into an Asian-inspired oasis of cool greens, exotic plants, and calm waters, enhanced by a Japanese footbridge. In his serial approach, Monet would return to the same view under different weather and light conditions, sometimes working on eight or more canvases in the same day.
About Claude Monet
Claude Monet (born November 14, 1840, Paris, France—died December 5, 1926, Giverny) was a French painter who was the initiator, leader, and unswerving advocate of the Impressionist style. In his mature works, Monet developed his method of producing repeated studies of the same motif in series, changing canvases with the light or as his interest shifted.
His popularity soared in the second half of the 20th century, when his works traveled the world in museum exhibitions that attracted record-breaking crowds.
