Monet’s Water Lilies

One thing I was most excited about in Paris was seeing Monet’s water lilies. Also, if my iPhone corrects “Monet” to “money” one more time I might loose it. This post will have very little writing, mainly because I don’t know details about all of the paintings, I just really loved them.

Musée de l’Orangerie is famous for housing some of Claude Monet’s most famous paintings: the Water Lilies. Inspired by the French village Giverny, the paintings depict scenes of his gardens throughout different times of the day. They line the walls of oval shaped rooms, and light filters in through skylights above.

  
  
  
   
 And of course, there are tons of other beautiful paintings housed in Musée de l’Orangerie, here are a few of my favorites.
