Water Lily Pond by Claude Monet
In this panel of the 1920-26 Water Lily Pond, the lilies float out of the reeds toward the center of the pond. A subtle play of light enhances this sense of motion, intensifying from the cool shadows at the right to the warmer illumination near the top left of the composition.
Claude Monet's The Clouds evokes the feeling of the cool, damp, fragrant air found near the water's edge. In the next section you'll experience Monet's The Clouds.
