This book brings together a selection of Impressionist paintings of gardens and flowers, a favourite and richly developed subject of artists including Monet, Renoir, Pissarro and Sisley. The Impressionists, with their approach to rendering outdoor effects and fleeting atmospheric conditions, captured the sunlit colour, mood and almost the smell of flower gardens. In doing so, they registered a new public sensibility: the love, not just of fresh air and greenery, but also of gloriously colourful settings on a domestic scale. For indeed, some of the best-loved works are of their own and their friends' gardens, such as Monet's garden at Giverny. This book is a celebration of both art and nature.
I took this shot In Giverny, during a visit in the wonderful garden of Claude Monet. Water Lilies (or Nympheas) is a series of approximately 250 oil paintings by French Impressionist Claude Monet (1840-1926). The paintings depict his flower garden at Giverny and were the main focus of Monet's artistic production during the last thirty years of his life. Many of the works were painted as Monet suffered from cataracts.
The paintings are on display at museums all over the world, including the Musee Marmottan-Monet in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Portland Art Museum. During the 1920s, the state of France built a pair of oval rooms at the Musee de l'Orangerie (I visited them, too) as a permanent home for eight water lily murals by Monet. The exhibit opened to the public on May 16, 1927, a few months after Monet's death.
Taken on the 2010 Worldwide Photo Walk in Denver, CO. This is a hand-held multiple exposure (either 5 or 6 exposures). It reminded me of Impressionist paintings of flowers.
