Claude Monet, the founder of French Impressionist painting, is perhaps best known for his series of paintings of Water Lilies, or ‘Les Nymphéas’. Particularly remarkable among this series is the set created between 1914 and 1917, considered by many as one of the most special artworks of the 20th century.

Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’ series was painted in his garden at Giverny, a small town in the French region of Normandy. This series stands as a testament to Monet’s ingenuity, showcasing a creative exploration of light, color, and reflection. Monet’s interpretation of his lily pond ranged from vibrant and detailed to abstract and dreamlike, demonstrating the evolution of his painting style.

Painted during the years of World War I, the 1914-1917 Water Lilies series holds a poignant significance. It was a period of immense personal and collective struggle for Monet, marked by the death of his second wife, Alice, and his eldest son, Jean. The world was embroiled in the Great War, a tumultuous backdrop that inevitably seeped into Monet’s creative process. Yet, his lily pond remained a source of solace and inspiration for the artist.

Each painting from this period is characterized by broad brush strokes, intense colors, and an overall sense of calm and tranquility, offering a stark contrast to the turmoil that was engulfing the world. They mark a dramatic departure from Monet’s earlier, more figurative works, towards an innovative, abstract style that would influence future generations of artists.

These paintings were not only a form of personal catharsis for Monet but also a symbolic affirmation of life and beauty amidst the chaos and destruction of war. They are considered special because they encapsulate the quintessence of Impressionism, pushing the boundaries of the genre into the realms of abstraction. Monet’s Water Lilies (1914-1917) are a testament to the artist’s relentless pursuit of capturing fleeting moments and the transformative power of nature, standing as beacons of hope during a period of despair.
