Claude Monet lived at his home in Giverny from 1883 to 1926, a total of forty-three years. As passionate about gardening as he was about color, he conceived his flower and water gardens as works of art in themselves. Walking through his garden and home, visitors can still feel the atmosphere that reigned in the master of Impressionism, and marvel at the flower compositions and water lilies that were his most fertile sources of inspiration.
