Monet – The Water Garden at Giverny in the National Gallery
Monet started working on these panting around the time of the First World War, a time of personal tragedy for him: he lost his wife and son and his eyesight started declining. This is truly reflected in the depth of melancholic expression of these paintings, their sad and somewhat mysterious nature.
