Irises, among Claude Monet’s (French, 1840–1926) favorite flowers, lined the pathways leading up to the house and Japanese bridge on the artist’s property at Giverny. This candle, created expressly for the Museum by one of the world’s oldest candle manufacturers, founded in France in 1734, captures the exuberant colors and subtle fragrances of Monet’s beloved bloom. Made by hand in Normandy, this candle is packaged in a gift box that features an image of The Path through the Irises
, while the glass holder displays a quote by Monet: “I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.”
Natural wax with iris scent. Made in France. 3 1/2''H; 2'' diam. 45-hour burn time. 6.7 oz.
