Meet the Artist
Claude Monet began to work in 1883 in the small village of Giverny down stream on the Seine from Paris. In 1893 he purchased the land in front of his home and built a Japanese style garden. A small stream ran through the property and he used it to build a huge pond which he filled with water lilies. Thus began the final and greatest series of paintings of his lifetime; a series of 250 sumptuous impressionist masterpieces which occupied the last thirty years of his life.
