Claude Monet’s Giverny – A Home and Garden Livestream Tour

April 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT

Claude Monet’s Giverny – A Home and Garden Livestream Tour. Hosted by Robert Kelleman – Washington, DC History & Culture.

Join for an online/virtual tour of Claude Monet’s home and gardens in Giverny, France!

Claude Monet lived and painted in Giverny from 1883 to his death in 1926. He purchased a house and property and began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known works. He began painting the water lilies in 1899, first in vertical views with a Japanese bridge as a central feature and later in the series of large-scale paintings that was to occupy him continuously for the next 20 years of his life. Monet gained much of his inspiration from his gardens and believed it was important to surround himself with nature and paint outdoors.

Oscar-Claude Monet (November 14, 1840 – December 5, 1926) was a French painter, a founder of French Impressionist painting and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement’s philosophy of expressing one’s perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein air landscape painting. The term “Impressionism” is derived from the title of his painting Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which was exhibited in 1874 in the first of the independent exhibitions mounted by Monet and his associates as an alternative to the Salon de Paris. Monet’s ambition of documenting the French countryside led him to adopt a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons.

Our program will be a slide-show presentation with some short videos of Giverny. Due to Covid we will not be livestreaming from Giverny itself – but our tour program will be the next best thing to being there. : )
