Claude Oscar Monet created an enormous amount of paintings of his iconic garden in Giverny, including Water Lily Pond Symphony In Rose which synthesizes of the artist's enthusiasm for gardening and his rapidly growing taste for the Oriental culture imported to Europe, taking the artistic sphere of late XIX century Paris by storm.
After a long period of continental travel at the beginning of the 1880’s, Monet settled with his wife Alice Haschedé and their combined eight children, forming a family. They moved to the small village of Giverny in the year 1883. The house had a garden which the artist would use as a reference when the weather didn’t allow to travel to different landscapes, but with time, he found a passion for gardening and created his own landscape at home. Along with many of his colleagues, Monet desired to get closer to nature, and moving to the countryside was the first step. Many other Impressionists visited and portrayed his garden, like Pierre Auguste Renoir.
During this period, Monet’s work became very well-known, and he was able to sell his paintings all over Europe and even in North America. This financial stability made it possible for him to expand his garden and build a pond with a Japanese bridge, as well as hiring many gardeners to assist him in maintaining his living artwork. The Impressionists were influenced by the Japanese art, especially the woodcut prints with subjects like nature and the ordinary life. This was one of the reasons these artists worked en plein air, experiencing nature while painting on location. The stillness of the Oriental cultures offered an opposition to the quick pace of the modern times. Monet translates this in his many portrayals of his beloved water lily pond, experimenting with different compositions, brush strokes, and color palette in each painting.
Water Lily Pond Symphony In Rose is an impassioned reproduction of the natural foliage Monet so loved and sought to tame and reproduce at will. In this version of the blossoming pond, Monet positions the bridge slightly to the right of the canvas – having one side covered in vegetation, and the other exceeding the limits of the canvas. The painter used a more natural and cool color palette.
