"Clemenceau decided that day, for his own enjoyment, and inviting me to join him, to go and choose some of the paintings from the new Water Lilies series that Claude Monet was giving to the State - a bouquet of flowers as a tribute to the victorious outcome of the war and to the peace that had been won."
