Description

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.

Monet

Claude Monet was considered as the French painter that founded Impressionist painting. He became world-famous in the late 20th century and an inspiration to an entire new generation of artists. Claude was raised into the Catholic church and was supposed to become the inheritor of the family business, selling ship supplies and equipment. His father was disapproving of his interest in Art and wanted his son to pursue more practical avenues. His mother, however, was a singer and supported the young Monet’s desire to become an artist. Disappointed with traditional art education in Le Havre, moved to Paris in his early twenties, where he met Charles Gleyre, Renoir, Bazille and Sisley. These artists would share Monet’s desire to set new beauty standards in conventional settings and things. The group were strongly opposed to Classicism; this desire would blossom into what we now recognize as the Impressionist movement. They worked outside, which had become possible because paint was now available in tubes). They focused on daily life scenes without symbolism or an underlying message. Of all his famous works, his series on Water Lilies is one of the most important and enduring, truly showing the depth and breadth that the Impressionist movement contained. The series is split all over the world and housed in a variety of venerable museums.
