Claude Monet - part 23 1897 - 1922 Water Lilies


Claude Monet (1840 – 1926) was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting. 


For full biographical notes on Monet see part 1. For earlier works by Monet see parts 1 - 22 also.

This is part 23 of a 27-part series on the works of Claude Monet:


Water Lilies 1897 - 1922
Part 1







Water Lilies (or Nymphéas) is a series of approximately 250 works by Monet. The paintings depict the flower garden and water lily pond at Giverny, and were the main focus of his artistic output during the last thirty years of his life. Many of the works were painted while Monet suffered cataracts on his eyes. During the 1920s the French State built a pair of oval rooms at the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris, as a permanent home to eight water lily murals. Sixty water lily paintings were assembled from around the world for a special exhibition at the Musée de l’Orangerie in 1999.

In 2007 one of Monet’s water lily paintings sold for £18.5 million at a Sotheby’s auction in London. In 2008 another water lily painting sold for almost £41 million at Christie’s in London, almost double the pre-auction estimate of £18 - £24 million.
