Monet’s Japanese Bridge

This is the Famous Japanese Bridge that Claude Monet painted so often.

It deserves lots of capitals because it has become the icon of the painter’s garden at Giverny.

In the bright sunshine its green turns almost blue, as can be observed on Monet’s paintings of this motive.

The picture was made in July when the wisteria tangled on the arbor flowers for a second time. This second blooming while the leaves are out is by far more discreet than the first one in May.

    I am a travel agent specializing only in France and I have clients who are looking forward very much to your tour. They will be there toward the end of May which should be splendid! Thank you! I looked hard to find someone who was an expert with the niche focus on Monet.
