The French painter icon of the Impressionist movement of the late nineteenth century lived and produced some of his greatest works in his famous country house endowed with a spectacular garden. The marked brushstrokes and characteristic colors that have revolutionized art attract tourists from all over the world. It is possible to see up close the Japanese bridge and the nympheas, both subjects of numerous paintings. The entire scene of Monet's creation was faithfully preserved.
