Claude Monet lived in his house in Giverny for 43 years, from 1883 to 1926. With a passion for gardening and colour, he conceived both his flower
garden and his water garden as true works of art.
The pink house with the green shutters houses the Fondation Claude Monet. It provides an excellent insight into the painter's everyday life. You can see his studio flooded with light, the "blue salon", the "yellow dining room" and the amazing garden.
The water lily pond with the Japanese bridge in the water garden inspired Monet for hundreds of paintings.
