Claude Monet lived for forty-three years in his house in Giverny from 1883 to 1926. Monet’s passion for gardening as well as for colours is shown in the beautiful gardens of the house, which Monet conceived as true works of art. Two key pieces being his water garden and flower garden.
As you walk through his house and gardens, it is still possible to feel the atmosphere that reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionism, while marvelling at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest source of inspiration. Many of his Japanese etchings are on show giving further insight into the painter’s creative talent.
