One of the Nelson-Atkins' most beloved works, Water Lilies, by Claude Monet is renowned for its soothing, meditative qualities.
In 1893, Claude Monet bought land adjacent to his property in Giverny, dug a pond, and turned it into a Japanese-inspired water garden. This contemplative environment served as inspiration for a series of paintings that occupied Monet’s artistic production from 1901 until his death in 1926. Typical of his other paintings dedicated to the water lily pond, the subject here is not so much the flowers but the dream-like effects produced by light reflecting off this liquid world.
