- The Claude Monet Foundation
Claude Monet lived in his house in Giverny for 43 years, from 1883 to 1926.
As passionate about gardening as he was about colours, he created both his flower garden and his water garden as true works of art.
While walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionism, as they marvel at the floral compositions and the water lilies, his greatest sources of inspiration.
