Giverny, cradle of Impressionism

Claude Monet first caught sight of the peaceful village of Giverny from a train window on a trip to Normandy. He fell in love with the village and spent over 40 years here, from 1883 to his death in 1926. The artist painted a number of works in the surrounding countryside, including the Poplars series, Haystacks and countless works depicting family bliss with his wife Alice and her children. The garden in front of the pink, green-shuttered house became a work of art that the great contemplator of nature nurtured and tended over the years and which inspired, among others, his famous and prolific Water Lilies series.
