The Legendary French Impressionist Claude Monet believed his gardens to be his artistic masterpiece. He lived in Giverny for the last forty years of his life, and his gardens there became not only the subject of most of his paintings but also his own private "controlled laboratories" where he could experiment with color, texture, light and shadow. Garden designer Elizabeth Murray worked as a gardener on the restored Giverny estate for a year and has firsthand knowledge of and thorough insight into Monet's own garden planning, color, palette and seasonal plantings. Her expertise is reflected in this outstanding selection of forty color photographs of the flowers and water gardens at Giverny.
