Claude Monet (French, 18401926) was a devoted horticulturist. In 1893 he purchased land with a pond near his house in Giverny, in order to build something for the pleasure of the eye and also for motifs to paint. His famous water-lily garden was the result.
In the summer of 1899 Claude Monet (French, 18401926) painted twelve views of the wooden footbridge over the pond, including Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies (1899) in the Museums collection. Our sumptuous neckerchief design is adapted from a detail in Monets luminous work. Silk twill. Imported. 21” square.
