Description

In 1893, Claude Monet (French, 18401926), a passionate horticulturist, purchased land with a pond near his property in Giverny, intending to build something for the pleasure of the eye and also for motifs to paint. The result was his water-lily garden. In the summer of 1899 he completed twelve paintings of views of the wooden footbridge over the pond, including Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies (1899) in the Museums collection. The pictures vertical format gives prominence to the water lilies and their reflections. Our colorful scarf design is adapted from a detail in Monets luminous work.

Art History

Claude Monet (French, 18401926) first painted his water lily pond at Giverny in 1899 and it dominated his art for the rest of his life. A key figure in the Impressionist movement that transformed French painting in the second half of the nineteenth century, Monet worked en plein air using rapid brushstrokes and broken color, the signatures of the new style. Working in natural light and shifting seasons, Monet returned to his subjects again and again in order to capture every observation, nuance, and reflection. He never grew tired of painting the evocative water lilies of his beloved Giverny.
