Monet's house and gardens

Painter and impressionist maestro Claude Monet was born in 1840, and lived in his Normandy house in the town of Giverny from 1883 until his death in 1926, a total of forty-three years. Landscape and portrait artist, Monet effectively created the impressionist movement along with Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Alfred Sisley, creating a rupture in the history of painting in the 19th Century. With Monet, everything changed, including the use of colours, the painting's subjects, and the use of light. Light was always the 'leading character' in his landscape paintings, and he took to painting the same objects at different times of day, such as in his famous series of paintings of the Rouen Cathedral. This is how, with his friends, Monet left academia to one side, and left the workshops to paint things 'just the way they are'. Normandy was a great source of inspiration for Claude Monet, Giverny in particular, along with Barbizon and Auvers-sur-Oise. Faced with a harsh critique, it would take years for him to be successful. Claude Monet painted five views of the Parc Monceau in the 1870's. Just as enthused by gardening as he was by colours, Monet managed to create a flower garden and water garden in Giverny that are true master-pieces in themselves, so much so that he even said "Perhaps I owe my being a painter to flowers". Towards the end of his life, his garden inspired his Waterlily piece (now in the Orangerie museum of Paris), one of his greatest works, at the same time as he had almost completely lost all sight. Monet is buried in the cemetery of Giverny. In his honour, a yellow and pink rose was created and named after him. Pariscityvision.com invites you to discover the great master-pieces of Claude Monet during the Full Day Monet : Orangerie Museum and Giverny tour.
