The water lilies are the subject of about 250 canvases painted by the impressionist artist Monet. The painter made them during his last thirty years of artistic production, despite the period in which he fell ill with cataracts. In 1883 Monet, together with his second wife Alice Hoschedé, moved to Giverny, an area not far from the centre of Paris. Here he decided to create his own little private paradise, setting up near his house a garden of direct Japanese inspiration with: a bridge, the pond of water lilies, roses, irises, tulips, bluebells, gladioluses, flowers, exotic plants, wisteria and weeping willows. At first Monet included in his works also architectural elements and many details. Subsequently (we refer to the period between 1899 and the last years of the artist's life) Monet, captured by the extreme beauty of water lilies, decided to study them and make them undisputed protagonists of his masterpieces. In this canvas, Monet's water lilies float on the water reflecting willows, poplars and wisteria. The flowers do not have sharp contours but are blurred and give the impression of being coloured spots, given by slight brush strokes, which mix with water. The impressionist master's eye is completely absorbed by the vibrant play of colours that these flowers, together with the sky, create on the surface of the water, which becomes an almost absolute dominant subject. Monet tries to draw on the canvas as quickly as possible, to be able to faithfully reproduce the plays of light, the nuances and the fleeting reflections of his garden. “Water Lilies are works that can be fully understood only by the souls of dreamers, by those who ask painting for the charms of music”. This quote by Monet fully captures the essence of his painting.
