Situated in Normandy, the village of Giverny is world-wide known for Claude Monet house and atelier.
His property has been left by his son to the Academy des Beaux Arts in 1966. After a large scale renovation in 1980 it becomes a Foundation. The house where the painter lived from 1883 to 1926 has its colourful decor and intimate charm of former times. The precious collection of Japanese is displayed in several rooms. The gardens offer for the admiration of visitors the “painting of the nature” which Claude Monet’s contemporaries considered one of his masterpieces.
The rectangular “Clos Normand”, with archways of climbing plants entwined around brilliantly coloured shrubs, lies before the house and studios offering the palette of varying colours of the painter-gardener who was “ecstatic” about flowers.
