Water Lily’s Beauty

by Ariane ~ June 30, 2015


Claude Monet was never tired of painting his water lilies, because they are ever changing. They open, they close, they float on a mirror that reflects the clouds passing, the sun getting higher and lower in the sky. Monet painted his water lilies relentlessly, almost 300 times.

It is a question that visitors I guide through the gardens ask regularly: “Do you ever get tired of it?”  No, never. How could one get tired of beauty?

    Thank you for sharing! I’ve been to Paris twice, went to the Louvre and Giverny, but did not see this mueusm. Maybe next time if there is a next time. I’m a big fan of Monet.
