This work by Claude Monet is dated 1899 and it is also called "The Japanese Catwalk" and now kept in Washington, at the National Gallery of Art. The painting is part of a series of 12 paintings, whose background is always the same: Giverny, a picturesque town near Paris, where Monet moves with his second wife. The canvas shows the Japanese-style wooden bridge that the artist has built in the garden of his villa in Giverny, surrounded by the numerous exotic plants that he cultivates and by the water lilies that are so dear to him. The intelligent and superb use of the shades and the beautiful light effects created by Monet, make this work a true masterpiece. The artist does not try to paint reality, but rather the play of colours and shapes that water is able to create. The pond, rich in flowers and plants, moves away from the traditional representation. If until today, in other paintings, it appears transparent, in this painting Monet shows us the depth of the water. In perfect impressionist style, the brush strokes are fast, intense and in various directions, with the aim of giving movement to the painting. Monet paints at various times of the day to see the changes in sunlight. Observing the scene, we can perceive the changes in the nature that he portrays: "I am forced to undergo continuous transformations, because everything grows and revives. By dint of transformations, I follow nature without being able to grasp it, and then this river that goes down and up, one day it is green, then yellow, one afternoon it is dry and tomorrow it will be a stream." The painting conveys a feeling of calm and tranquillity: a bridge surrounded by green, the harmonious colours and the lights that spread through space transport the observer in the "window of paradise" that Monet has created.
