Monet's Garden is the colourful garden of an artist, by an artist. This is the garden created from 1883 to 1926 in the Valley of the River Epte by Claude Monet, one of the world's best loved artists. He was the leader of the Impressionist painters, the term being derived in 1874 from his landscape Impression Soleil Levant.
Monet liked painting a subject in the open air at different times of day to show variation in light. This garden was thus a picture itself besides a subject for painting. His garden will have special appeal for artists and photographers.
