One morning in 1872, a pale sun rises in the misty port of Le Havre and #impressionism is born.

Imagine to be the atelier in Giverny, just on that morning a long time ago and you will be overwhelmed by the colors and shapes of this painting to experience the sensations that Monet himself felt while admiring that legendary sunrise.

Inside Monet - impression at sunrise

Impression, Sunrise (1872)


Let yourself be part of a snapshot of this moment, outdoors, in front of a scarlet poppy field, to feel the summer breeze and the light shades of the Ile de France region that Monet wanted to "capture" by painting in open air.
The Poppy Field (1873)


Experience one of the walks that Monet's wife took with her son during the hot summer days on the hills of Argenteuil. Watch Camille's dress waving and the grass moving in the pleasant summer breeze that envelops the whole landscape.
The Stroll (1875)


Let yourself be carried away in "Grainstacks": in front of a field immersed in the sun and the haystacks, with the light  changing on a clear day, to explore the theme of light mutations and the color effects on the grainstacks, much appreciated by the painter.
Grainstacks (1890-91)


Monet considered the garden at Giverny his most beautiful masterpiece, and this is where the series of works featuring water lilies was born. Plunge into the last painting, in the harmony of colors and brushstrokes combined with the water and natural light effects.
Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge (1899)
