The History of Claude Monet’s Water Lilies
One of the most-loved French Impressionist Masters, Claude Monet’s Water Lilies is well known around the world. It is both a tranquil and a radiant example of French Impressionism and epitomizes the glories found in nature.
Water Lilies is not just a single painting but is – in fact – the name of an entire series of Monet’s works. During the course of his artistic career, Claude Monet painted more than 250 water lilies paintings. Along with Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, the Water Lilies paintings are the most iconic images of Impressionism.
And they were also the most impactful on the future course of impressionist art.
Beyond the serene beauty of its appearance, the Water Lilies series of paintings helped create a distinct path for abstract and impressionist artists. Monet and his artistic circle were among the first to challenge the standard conventions of art in the modern Parisian age. By doing so, he was able to help artists and art lovers develop a greater understanding of light and color. This opened the artistic door for many successive generations of artists and new and emerging art styles.
It may seem strange to think that a series of paintings of water lilies could help break down artistic barriers, but they did. Although he didn’t do it all not alone. Monet worked with his artistic contemporaries to tear down the barriers that had previously limited an artist’s freedom of expression.
By the time Monet died, he had completely and irreversibly changed the course of modern art. Now, tapestry artisans have masterfully recreated Monet’s extraordinary & impactful images into fine art textile form.
