Monet, Water Lilies Silk Scarf

(No reviews yet)
Water Lilies Scarf

This scarf was inspired by the famous Water Lilies, 1905 painting by Claude Monet (French 1840-1926) which is part of our permanent collection. Beginning in 1903, Monet embarked on a series of canvases depicting his water garden at Giverny. Here, the pads of lilies scattered across the painting suggest the water's surface, receding into space. The pattern of light and dark beneath the lilies indicates the reflection on the water-sky and the trees on a distant bank. Monet exhibited forty-eight of these "landscapes of water" in 1909. Fascinated by the artist's subtle fusion of reality and reflection, critics compared the paintings to poetry and music.
