Claude Monet helped give rise to the Impressionist movement in France during the late 1800s. Much of his artwork depicts landscapes in which he painted certain scenes a number of times to capture the changing light and seasons.
Monet purchased a house and gardens in Giverny, France during the 1880s, which he used as inspiration for a number of his paintings. This included designing the layout for the plants, trees, lakes and even installing a Japanese bridge.
Two of his most famous paintings are included in our Signare tapestry collection. The detail and colour he imbued each picture with are an endless joy today.
