The soft, translucent light of the Seine valley has drawn artists to Normandy for centuries and it was here that Claude Monet made his home at Giverny. His paintings were inspired by the garden he created, full of flowers like splashes of colour on an artist’s palate. The Monet garden at Giverny is now run by the Fondation Monet, who have restored it much as it was when the artist painted his famous series of Nymphéas water lilies, with watery reflections in the Japanese inspired garden.
