What’s more comforting than Monet’s Waterlilies? They’re just a click away thanks to the Musée de l’Orangerie’s virtual tour, now available on the museum’s official website, and accessible here.
Inspired by his water lily pond, which he meticulously observed every day from his house in Giverny, Claude Monet began to paint his Nymphéas in 1890. The artist’s iconic series lasted more than three decades, until his death in 1926.
Today, eight of these monumental compositions are on display at the Musée de l’Orangerie. The fantastic works are installed according to Monet’s 1927’s guidelines.
In collaboration with Google Art Project, the Paris museum opened its virtual doors to give the wider world access to the two oval rooms showcasing two paintings, achieved between 1915 and 1926 in Giverny, making the shades of calming pastels available to all.
