Claude Monet - Garden at Giverny, 1902
*Ο κήπος του Giverny (που σχεδόν κάθε γωνιά του έχει ζωγραφιστεί απ' τον Μονέ) είναι σήμερα μεγάλη τουριστική ατραξιόν: μια Ντίσνειλαντ γι' αυτούς που αγαπούν τη φύση και την τέχνη.
Από την Wikipedia: The village of Giverny was noticed by Claude Monet while looking out the window of the train he was on. He made up his mind to move there and rented a house and the area surrounding it. In 1890 he had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings, such as his water lily and Japanese bridge paintings, were of his garden in Giverny. The artist lived in Giverny from 1883 until his death in 1926. He and many members of his family are interred in the village cemetery.
In recent years Monet's house and gardens have been restored and have become a popular tourist attraction (the Foundation Claude Monet), particularly in the summer when the flowers are in bloom.
