Water Lilies

Claude Oscar Monet is most famous for his oil paintings of water lilies. In fact, he concluded over two-hundred and fifty artworks portraying his beloved pond, including Water Lilies, done in 1906. The Impressionist and his second wife, Alice Hoschedé, moved to Giverny in 1883. During about a decade the artist traveled throughout the Mediterranean, seeking landscapes in Venice and even London.

Monet eventually settled down in his home in the country-side and with his upcoming success as a painter, was able to expand his property by purchasing the land adjacent to his. With a financial stability – as he was selling his art in the United States of America and all over Europe – the painter was able to hire housekeepers to attend to his family and many gardeners to help him maintain his growing garden. This garden became a living artwork, as Monet called it his “most beautiful masterpiece” and can be visited until this day. The Impressionists traditionally joined in groups to paint en plein air– meaning they worked outside to capture the fleeting effects of natural sunlight on a landscape. Although Monet ventured into the surroundings of Giverny, he was able to create a scene of his own in which many other modern painters came to visit and paint as well, like Pierre Auguste Renoir.

Eventually, the cultural and artistic influence that captured the Impressionists reflected also in Monet’s garden, as he installed a pond and a Japanese bridge over it. The flowers seen in Water Lilies, as well as the other paintings of the series, were imported from North Africa and South America. In this version, Monet depicts the pond in a square canvas that begins in a deep blue pigment in the bottom, gradually getting lighter with the shining sunlight, and then green at the top – as it reflects the vegetation, possibly tall trees.

There are clusters of water lilies in shades of light green, yellow and white in the background, as well as some pink flowers. The blue and green pigments of the water mix and some shades of purple can also be seen. Closer to the viewer, Monet depicts some scattered water lily leaves in shades of green, blue and purple, as well as some flowers. The vibrant colors and dark contours and very reminiscent of the Japanese woodcut prints that inspired Monet.
