Le pont sur le bassin aux nympheas by Claude Monet (1899)

One of the many stunning paintings Monet completed in his own garden at Giverny. If you visit his gardens and house, you can see this Japanese bridge and waterlilies.

Monet painted the same scenes over and over, trying to capture the nuances of lighting, color, movement at different times of the day, season, year.
