Photographer's Note

Visiting this quite charming garden I noticed this scene, source of inspiration of some of Monet´s works

Painter & Giverny
Claude Monet noticed the village of Giverny while looking out of a train window, first he rented the house which he bought in 1890 along with some land and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint
Claude Monet didn’t t like organized gardens, he matched flowers according to their colors and left them to grow rather freely
In 1893, ten years after his arrival at Giverny, Monet bought the piece of land next to his property on the other side of the railway, crossed by a small stream, the Re, tributary of the Epte, a tributary of the Sene
Never before had a painter shaped his subjects in nature before painting them
Also, that way, he created his works twice
