Painters usually see the scenic beauty and portray it on their canvas. Claude Monet however, played splendidly with the natural colors by acquiring a piece of land in the Clos Normand. Making full use of his creativity he diverted an arm of the river to create a pond now called the Jardin d’eau. To beautify the scenery even more, he built a Japanese bridge (Pont Japonais) but painted it green to create a difference. The refection of the green bridge, colorful ornamentals, white clouds and the blue sky is certainly not something you would want to miss. Maples, bamboo, Japanese peonies, willow trees, the admirable water lilies, metal archways will give you a majestic experience.
That’s not it.
Claud Monet’s house is another artistic piece you don’t want to overlook when you come to France. The Painter of light spent 43 years of his life in this long-winded pastel pink house surrounded by the flower-filled water garden. The blue sitting room, kitchen, artist’s studio and private apartments are worth visiting. The two floored building reflects the presence of an artist by the color schemes and the interior. The ground floor consists of the blue sitting room, pantry, the studio sitting room, dining room and the kitchen. The first floor has private apartments. After undergoing a scenographic reconstitution in 2013, Monet’s bedroom now contains his masterpieces and reproductions of painting by his friends.
