The Garden of Claude Monet


First, a little background information provided on-sight.

Nestled against the hillside, the Musée des Impressionnismes, Giverny blends harmoniously with its surroundings.When designing the museum,architect Philip Robert laid out the garden that was later completed by landscape architect Mark Rudkin. An arbor of white wisteria invites visitors to enter, while paying homage to Monet.The garden features a series of lush rooms created by thuya and beech hedges. Each room is either thematic(aromatic plants, roses, etc.) or monochromatic (which represent the primary colors). Seasonal plantingsrenew the garden from spring through autumn in keeping with this concept. These colourful and fragrant spaceslead from the foundtain to the meadow and opens to the gentle slope of the hillside that inspired numerousimpressionist paintings.
