The subject of the Water Lilies series, the water pond and the Japanese bridge are a beautiful sight. The bridge is covered in purple wisterias, planted by Monet himself.
The American Art Museum houses paintings by American impressionist artists who came to France in the late 19th century. In fact, many sought inspiration and guidance from Monet, the ‘Painter of Light’.
A day trip from Paris, Giverny draws visitors to see the garden that inspired Monet to create such beautiful work.
