This image of the Japanese footbridge, a focal point in French Impressionist Claude Monet's famous gardens in Giverny, France, is given a unique vertical treatment in his beautiful study of the water lilies reflecting on the pond. The water landscapes of Claude Monet were the main focus of his artistic pursuit during the last 30 years of his life. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our imported hardwood frame features bold, beaded detail on the borders and is highlighted in antiqued gold tones to enhance this spectacular image.

   Claude Monet (1840-1926)

Claude Monet's paintings are considered to be exemplary of the philosophy of Impressionism, which was to show one's perceptions before nature. The term Impressionism is derived from Monet's painting, Impression, Sunrise and Monet himself was a founder of French Impressionism painting.

Claude Monet was born on November 14, 1840 in Paris, but moved to the port town of Le Havre when he was 5 years old. For much of his childhood, Monet was considered by his parents and teachers to be undisciplined and, therefore, unlikely to succeed in life. He enjoyed creating caricatures and by the age of 15, was receiving commission for his work. Fellow artist Eugene Boudin taught young Monet the en plein air techniques for painting. He was the in initiator, leader and unswerving advocate of the Impressionist style that can be seen in paintings such as Bordighera. Monet's paintings such as Nympheus and Water Lilies at Giverny were inspired by his home and garden in Giverny. He was buried in a nearby cemetery after succumbing to lung cancer in 1926.
