Monet's Last Muse - 43 Years at Giverny
Time & Location
About the Event
Who hasn’t dreamed of walking along the overflowing floral alleyways in Claude Monet’s garden at Giverny or stepping into his first atelier where copies of his favorites painting still adorn the walls, and then the dining room where he and his guests dined for hours? Monet’s passion for horticulture began as a young man and was often a great source of solace during the difficult moments of his life. Like many of us, he also collected and saved seeds from season to season. This allowed him to ‘take’ his garden with him when he was forced to change residences and find cheaper housing. While the initial garden at Giverny in 1883 was filled with fruits and vegetables to feed his second wife and 8 children, as soon as he could afford to rent land elsewhere in the village for these practical purposes, he began planting more and more flower around his home. What began as a passionate hobby soon became a laboratory of color, light and reflections where his greatest chef d’oeuvres were conceived and executed. Until the sanitary conditions allow us to enjoy it in person, please join me for a virtual visit of this flamboyant and historical location.
