Giverny

 

Giverny is a small French village 50 miles (80 km) west of Paris.

The village is best known as the rural retreat of the Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926). Monet moved to Giverny in 1883 with his family, including his second wife and 8 children, living and painting here until his death in 1926.

The village surroundings and the gardens of his house formed a great part of the inspiration and subject matter for his paintings. It was after the move to Giverny that Monet began his famous Séries of paintings, repeatedly rendering haystacks, cathedrals and waterlilies from his garden pond in his own unique Impressionist style.

Combination
Unusual Local Feature

Monet's House & Garden

Claude Monet's property at Giverny (house and gardens), left by his son to the Académie des Beaux-Arts in 1966, became a Museum opened to public visit in 1980 after completion of large-scale restoration work. The artist’s home is quietly eccentric and interesting in an Orient-influenced style, and includes Monet's collection of Japanese prints. There are no original Monet paintings on the site. The real drawcard is the gardens around the house -- the water garden with the Japanese bridge, weeping willows and waterlilies that are now iconic.
