Claude Monet (Giverny, France)

Shy of an hour-drive north of Paris, you can stroll in the shoes of the Impressionist founder at his maudlin residence.

Monet is endeared by many, remembered through his idyllic portraits, many of which were inspired by his enchanting abode. He was a maven in manipulating reflections and colour to paint the subtlety of nature and sunlight.

An avid admirer of Japanese art himself, Monet echoed this love in his water garden. The old Japanese bridge in his oasis was the subject of his masterpiece “Water Lily Pond”.
