« It took me some time to understand my nymphéas…..I grew them without thinking of painting them . You cannot become immersed in a landscape in a single day…And then, all of a sudden, I had the revelation of the enchantments of my pond….I took my palette . Since then, I have had almost no other model. »   Claude Monet talked about the nymphéas of  his Water garden in Giverny.
