Good Impressionism




From 1883 Impressionist painter Claude Monet lived in Giverny, where he purchased a house and property, and began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known work. In 1899 he began painting the water lilies, first in vertical views with a Japanese bridge as a central feature, and later in the series of large-scale paintings that was to occupy him continuously for the next 20 years of his life. Today, design houses such as Harlequin (‘Exuberance’ wallcovering, top), Armani/Casa (‘Club’ bar, centre), and Tufenkian Artisan Carpets (bottom) are still creating designs featuring soft brushstrokes and dreamy florals.
