From the world-famous water lilies to his colourful poppies, Monet's way of depicting nature is enchanting. Oscar-Claude Monet (1840-1926) was born in Paris. Monet is seen as the pioneer of the Impressionist movement in the visual arts. Part of his dreamy works can be seen in the exhibition Gardens of Imagination at the Kunstmuseum in The Hague until 2 February 2020. In this category we honour the impressionist painter with a selection of beautiful decorations, jewellery, furniture and accessories. Inspired by or derived from the beautiful art movement in which the experience of a moment, a sketchy painting style and light and color are central.
Monet made special use of light and shadow in his paintings. The pond of his garden in Giverny - his last house - fascinated him by the reflections in the water. The flower garden near the house is also inspired by the traditional Japanese garden. We see bamboo, water lilies and wisteria. He said the following about this in 1908: "These landscapes of water and reflections have become an obsession. They are beyond the powers of an old man, and yet I want to succeed in depicting what I see."
