     The “water lilies series was proposed by Georges Clemenceau, then France’s head of state, and occupied Monet until his death on 8 December 1926. Monet donated eight paintings from the series to the state in 1918 to celebrate the Armistice.
     During the Franco-Prussian War, Monet fled to London for two years to avoid conscription into the military. While in London he spent a lot of time with Pissarro which affected his painting style, changing his choice of colors and continually decreasing the size of his brushstrokes.

     Monet believed nature was a sanctuary from the sadder side of life — particularly commercial development — and he made sure every home he had after the war had a luxurious garden — or he made one. Above is a photo of Claude Monet in 1923-24 on the Rose Path leading to the house in his garden at Giverny.
