Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies by Claude Monet
Monet's first intense period of work at the pond began in the summer of 1899. When the weather turned cold, he completed six works to his satisfaction in the studio.
The following year, Claude Monet would afford his undivided attention to his water garden. See the more lush, saturated tones of The Waterlily Pond, Harmony in Pink in the next section.
