“My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece” Claude Monet
I have had the pleasure to visit Monet’s gardens in Giverny on three occasions: June, 1997; January, 1998; and May 2010. The appearance of his garden changes in color and texture many times during a season because his plantings are so diverse and timed to bloom at different intervals. In Claude Monet’s own words, “My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece”. His garden was as much his art as his paintings. He used it as inspiration to create many paintings based on how light affects color, which made him a leader in the Impressionist movement. Explore the Giverny Gardens website. It’s a terrific source of information and more photographs.
Future blogs will have more of my photos and videos from my three visits to Giverny – I think you will find them to be very unique.
