Monet and water lily
One of Monet having shown interest other than the picture production is gardening. I moved to countryside Giverny in northwestern France and built there up an ideal garden and raised a seasonal plant at the age of 43.
Above all, the water lily becomes the main motif of his work and describes repeated cultivation 200 points or more. The masterpiece "water lily" which I produced as the collected studies is donated to a French nation by a will of Monet and is displayed in the Musée de I'Orangerie of Paris now.
