Claude Monet (1840 - 1926)
This poster is the reproduction of Les Nymphéas bleus painted around 1916-1919 by Claude Monet (1840-1926) and exhibited at the Musée de l'Orangerie in Paris.
The nymphea is a type of water lily that was part of Claude Monet's water garden in his Giverny property, in the valley of the Seine.
The first works representing water lilies, irises and willows were painted in 1885. From 1887, Monet conceives the project of a vast decorative ensemble: the nymphea cycle.
In 1918, these canvases joined the Orangerie museum, where the public discovered the integral Impressionism of these frameless landscapes.
