Waterlilies at Giverny by Claude Monet
For years Claude Monet conceived of painting a decorative ensemble that would cover the walls of a room with paintings of the water and the floating lilies. Upon entry, the visitor would be immersed in the sensations of light and water, an infinite unity unbounded by a horizon or shore, as seen in his 1917-19 painting Waterlilies at Giverny.
