Flowers for Monet - Blumen für Monet


Don’t we all long to live like flowers, alive with perfect beauty? The work of Claude Monet (1840 – 1926) is a seed that has firmly taken root in the world’s artistic heritage. It was a trip that inspired him to create his radiant garden in Giverny. After traveling through the night, the flower fields in Holland appeared before his eyes like a bright sea of colours, in which the blossoming individual flowers simultaneously dissolved and fully unfolded.

Relax and Rejoice with Art and Poetry from around the world

Flowers unite the light energy of the sun and the mythical spirit of earth and water. Based on this idea, 67 artists from 29 countries came together at the occasion of Claude Monet’s 180th birthday to honor the well-traveled impressionist with contemporary artistic abundance. Apart from Antibes, Venice, London, Norway, and Brittany, Monet mainly painted in Normandy: In Étretat and Rouen, and in Giverny where he finally found a haven in his art-inspired garden.
