The Gardens of Giverny: A View of Monet's World;
Photographs by Stephen Shore
February 4 to May 22, 2011

In 1883 Claude Monet discovered Giverny, and after making it his home, began to create the now famous gardens and the magnificent pond of water lilies which would become the subjects of some of his most revered paintings. In 1977, after extensive restorations had been completed on the pond and gardens, photographer Stephen Shore captured on film the place that so inspired Monet. Shore, like Monet, took advantage of the varying light and color that the magnificent garden had to offer with the added intention of giving viewers a physical sense of the place. Today the gardens, and Shore’s photographs, stand as a testament to the importance of Giverny in Monet’s life and work.
