Claude Monet’s long career was a quest to understand the effects of light and color on objects, and of the juxtaposition of colors with each other. To this end, of often painted the same subjects under different atmospheric conditions. “To me the motif was an insignificant factor,” he said, “What I want is to reproduce what exists between the motif and me.”

These motifs included haystacks, the Rouen Cathedral, the River Seine, Waterloo Bridge, and the Houses of Parliament, but it was in his lily ponds at Giverny that his muse would find her purest expression. Populated with varicolored species from France, South America and Egypt, their alternating light and mirror-like reflections transfixed Monet for the last thirty years of his life, during which he painted them in some 250 variations.

Rendered in an overall cool palette accented by white lilies turning pink with age, this piece is part of an early sub-series within this body of work, consisting of eighteen views of his Japanese footbridge spanning a pond. By the mid-1910s Monet would achieve, in the words of art curator Gary Tinerow, “a completely new, fluid and somewhat audacious style of painting in which the water-lily pond became the departure for an almost abstract art.”

Product Information

Expect crisp detail and vivid color from our giclée process fine art prints. We use archival pigment inks on cotton fiber paper to achieve a wide color gamut, deep blacks and beautiful tonal transitions. Unlike posters, they will not fade or yellow, but maintain their original quality for as long as you own them.

How to Frame

Historical artworks were produced in whatever shapes and sizes best suited the artists and their patrons, and these rarely correspond to the proportions of modern, mass-produced frames. Most reproductions sold on the web are cropped to an arbitrary standard, compromising the integrity of the original artwork. We solve this by using accent borders to make up any differences in proportion.

Framing may be as simple as inserting the print into a standard size frame with the borders showing. In many cases, our customers choose to have them matted. Borders allow space for framers to mount the print while covering little, if any, of the artwork. Our images are sized to provide desirable mat widths in common frames.

Sizes 9” x 12”, 12” x 16”, and 16” x 20” are designed to be matted in larger frames, such as 11” x 14”, 16” x 20” and 20” x 24”, respectively. Larger prints may be matted in frames of equal size, the borders corresponding to the shape of the mat. Where the artwork is unusually square or narrow, other sizes may be preferred.

If our sizing does not meet your requirements, we provide customization free of charge. Please contact us to discuss the details.
