Water lilies and weeping willows, winding footpaths and a Japanese-inspired footbridge—the gardens at Claude Monet’s home in Giverny, France, proved endlessly inspiring for the master Impressionist during his late years. Throughout this final phase of his career he focused his artistic energies on the perception of nature, on the challenge of capturing the very moment of sensory impression. At various times of day and in all seasons, he moved between multiple canvases, working quickly to catch subtle changes in color and texture, and, especially, the fleeting effects of light on water. Monet: The Late Years presents a collection of masterful works that heralded the advent of modernism.
