As I was writing an article for a soon to be released blog post on a recent book I read on Claude Monet, which I'm highly recommending, I realized I have much more to share beyond what I gleaned from reading the book. The article on the book itself is getting quite long already!
Living in Paris, I took full advantage of its proximity to Giverny, Claude Monet’s home in his later years, and visited it multiple times in every season of the year, with the exception of winter when it’s closed. I did however visit the last week of the year it was open before closing for the winter season.
Seeing it in this way in all seasons gave me full appreciation of the ever changing light and landscape in the garden that was the main inspiration and only subject matter for Monet in his later years.
I will be starting a blog series about Monet, starting with a review of the book, my visits to his home in Giverny, and other museums and places in France, that may or may not have a direct correlation to Monet, but that I think will be interesting.
Stay tuned…the post about the book will be coming up shortly!
