THE STORY BEHIND

In 1890, legendary impressionist painter Claude Monet embarked on a series of monumental compositions depicting the lush lily ponds in his idyllic gardens he created in Giverny, Normandy to find calm and serenity. A true emblem of modern art and impressionism, the series of water lilies includes around 250 oil vast paintings envisioned in a circular installation that Claude Monet called “les grandes décorations“. It envelops the viewer in an expanse of water, flora, and sky. Exhibited at the Orangerie Museum in Paris as a gift from the artist to the nation of France, the water lilies 22 panels never cease to inspire, subjugate and fascinate.

GIVERNY magnificent silk Scarf showcases water lilies blooming in a green and blue luminous pond in which lavender-color tinged clouds reflect.Thick strokes in darker shades seep into the left panel, while on the right, sky and water are gently swallowed by an expanse of reddish-green vegetation. The dense composition hovers at the threshold of abstraction, its lack of horizon creating an effect of total immersion. All I did was to look at what the universe showed me.Claude Monet
