Monet first spotted the village of Giverny from the window of a train and then relocated to the rural haven outside Paris in 1883.

The setting of Monet's Water Lilies series his most famous works it is now the most visited garden of its size in the Western world. The beautifully vivid illustrations of Monet's paintings, his home, and the grounds give readers unprecedented access into the flowery paradise to which Monet dedicated the last forty years of his life. Lovers of garden design and Impressionist art are invited on an intimate tour via this handsome volume.
