What is so magical about Monet’s Water Lilies?

The display of Claude Monet’s water-lily pond triptych was a key consideration in the architectural design of the Fondation Beyeler museum right from the earliest planning stages. Ernst Beyeler was determined to create an exhibition space worthy of this undisputed masterpiece. The resulting Monet Room allows the 9-meter-long composition to reveal its full magnificence under optimum lighting conditions. In Monet’s Le bassin aux nymphéas, a late work of around 1917–20, water, sky, vegetation, light and color flow each into the next. Nature is without a horizon; it appears boundless.

ANSICHTEN no. 2 takes an in-depth look at this water-lily triptych. Detailed descriptions, technical data, special features, background information, and questions of interpretation all fall within the scope of this booklet.

ANSICHTEN is aimed at art lovers and teachers looking to engage in greater depth with the works of the Fondation Beyeler.

The journal also features a practical section, which presents ideas, tasks and experiments that may be carried out at the museum, at school or at home.

ANSICHTEN playfully provides readers with thorough knowledge of the works of the Beyeler Collection.
