Hi Cat - that is one of my favourite places ever. Just sitting in that room, surrounded by the beauty, encompassed and enfolded by it. So so peaceful. If I recall correctly, after all the horror of the First World War, Monet wanted to give a gift of beauty to the nation of France and this was it.. beautiful, precious, special.

I loved the view of the Eiffel Tower, but was MOST impressed by this room that Monet created. I have seen some of his water lilies, but absolutely NOTHING on a grand scale like this. I can see why you were so very impressed with these rooms.

Go for it! Perhaps the best piece of advice of all time - lol... I'm only half kidding about that! I was very fortunate to get to see the huge Monet exhibit at the Chicago Art Institute in 1995, which consisted of 159 paintings, including some multi-panel waterlilies paintings. I would guess these are different from the ones in those oval rooms. All I know is they were awe-inspiring! Thanks for sharing this video of Monet's stunning works! xox
