The late work of Claude Monet represents a time of artistic focus on his living laboratory—the gardens he created at his home in Giverny, about 45 miles outside Paris. Flowers, not figures, were Monet’s primary subjects during this final stage of his long career. The paintings featured in this notecard set showcase the artist’s mastery of the effects of light, particularly in the interplay between reflections, shadows, aquatic plant life, and the surface of water.
