The Water-Lily Pond

Perhaps the subject for which he is best-known, The Water-Lily Pond is a dreamy and typical representation of the Impressionist movement. Monet moved to Giverny outside of Paris where he cultivated his famous aquatic-garden. Many of Monet’s painting feature his water-lilies under different light conditions and arrangements. This rendition is painted at a considerable distance, featuring one of the Japanese-style bridges displayed on the property.
