Much of Claude Monet’s love affair with natural light and color took place in this green-trimmed pink country house, where the artist lived and worked from 1883 to 1926. His greatest passion was his garden, and it has been meticulously re-created and planted to provide a glory of floral drama for the three seasons it is open to the public. It was here that Monet and his fellow Impressionists- Sisley, Cèzanne, Pissarro, Manet, and Renoir– would set up their easels outdoors. Walking through his house and gardens, you will feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.
After the lunch in a local village restaurant, we will drive to Paris and continue our tour in the Marmottan museum. In Marmottan, you can find Monet’s friends paintings along with his own famous works such as ”Impression, Sunrise” – which was the start of impressionism.
