A charming country village, it was here that the impressionist painter Claude Monet chose to settle with his family and painted the famous Water Lilies series. Also referred to as the Painter of Light , Monet was one of the first artists of his time to step out of the studio and experiment with light, shadow and the different effects of sunlight on nature.
