Who already has a lily pond in their home?
The Nymphéas water-lilypaintings dominated Claude Monet’s artistic output and creative evolution for many years. The present work dates from the latter part of Monet’s water-lily phase, which began in 1895 beside the lily pond in the artist’s Giverny garden. Monet increasingly lowered his gaze to focus upon the uninterrupted surface of the pond, on which the water lilies appear to float. Thanks to the high quality of the reproduction, the reflections of the trees and skies are also impressively conveyed by the poster.
