Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926) was a key figure in the Impressionist movement that transformed French painting in the second half of the nineteenth century. Dedicated to painting en plein air
, Monet created an extensive garden on his property at Giverny, including a water lily pond, which inspired a series of paintings in 1899; thereafter the subject dominated his art. Our lovely watch design features a detail adapted from Monet’s Water Lilies
in the Museum’s collection.
