The Magic of Giverny

In 1883, Claude Monet moved to Giverny, a village in Normandy, and designed his own garden there, which inspired many of his famous paintings. It consists of two parts: the Clos Normand, a flower garden in front of the house, and the Water Lily Garden, a Japanese-style pond with a bridge. Monet planted a variety of flowers and plants that offered different colours and shapes depending on the season.

His garden in Giverny was an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the artist. He painted over 250 works of art showing his green paradise in various lighting conditions, seasons and perspectives. He experimented with colours, shapes and reflections to capture the atmosphere and mood of the garden. Monet created some of his most famous works, such as the Water Lilies series, the Bridge over a Pond, and Japanese Iris.
Contemporary artists like Jean-Claude Cubaynes also draw inspiration from the beauty of the garden to create wonderful works.
