Giverny automatic translate
The picturesque Normandy village of Giverny, an hour’s drive from Paris (75 kilometers in the direction of Rouen) is known for the fact that in it for more than forty years the famous Claude Monet lived and painted.
Master of painting, passing in 1883 past the village of Giverny by train, was deeply impressed by her beauty. The love for this place made Monet soon return there and rent a house with an adjacent site, which he subsequently bought out and began to equip his garden. Having married for the second time, Monet settled in the estate with his numerous family - his second wife, his two sons and his six children from his first marriage.
After the move of Monet, already famous outside of France painter, in Giverny, representatives of American impressionism, whose paintings are now exhibited at the local Museum of Impressionism, were drawn. Talented Claude Monet, possessing the delicate taste of a real connoisseur of living beauty, turned the provincial place into a real paradise, with his own hands, which later inspired him to create more than 100 beautiful canvases!
Over time, Monet decided to expand the territory of his garden, adding an additional plot to the original 1 hectare of land across the road, where the Water Garden was built with a pond and water lilies.
A cozy house with a gently pinkish facade, entwined with a vineyard, and dark green shutters is buried in the luxurious garden of author’s design by Claude Monet! To the creation of his garden, Monet approached with a high artistic skill, as if applying a multicolored flower brush on the canvas, dividing them, as if on a palette, by narrow garden alleys! Flowerbeds, flower beds and front gardens of irises, aubergines, roses, poppies, lilies, azaleas, beautiful shady arches, a bamboo grove, a pond with delicate water lilies and an elegant Japanese bridge serve as a living work of art, one of Master’s masterpieces!
Throughout life, horticulture for Monet out of amateur interest has developed into a serious passion, accompanied by professional cooperation with flower growers and nurseries. Friends Monet from the environment of artists (Cezan, Renoir, Matisse and others), visiting the owner of the estate in Giverny, brought as a gift of rare plants and seeds.
The garden was for Monet and a muse, and an art studio, and a homemade palette of colors! A pond with floating water lilies becomes for Monet one of the favorite objects of the image that the artist drew again and again. The owner of the manor himself admitted his total passion for painting and gardening: "En dehors de la peinture et du jardinage, je ne suis bonrien!"
Already at the slope of his life, Monet made a grand design - he created a circular panorama of eight panels with a picture of his favorite water lilies. The artist’s life in the town of Giverny proceeded in constant labor surrounded by relatives and friends. The master enthusiastically engaged in his favorite business and even during life was awarded the recognition of his work!
Monet lived a good, quiet life and died at 86 in his beloved estate. The artist is buried at the local cemetery.
Forty years later, in 1966, Monet’s possessions were handed over by the will of his son Michel of the Academy of Fine Arts, and in June 1980, after restoration, the famous manor opened its doors to the public. It attracts many tourists who are not indifferent to the creativity of Monet and the beauty of nature. Indeed, it is rather difficult to know the nature of Monet’s genius without visiting his house and garden.
The paintings of Monet are exhibited in the local Museum of Impressionism (300 meters from the manor), in the Vernon Museum (4 kilometers from Giverny), as well as in the Parisian museums of fine arts - Marmottan Monet, Orangerie and Orsay.
