Claude Monet was not only a legendary painter, but an accomplished gardener, gourmand, and family man who took infinite care to design domestic spaces that were as luminously beautiful as his canvases. These ten images provide intimate glimpses of his wife and children in their homes and gardens: the nursery of his newborn son, an outdoor table set for tea, a garden of gladioli. Pictured, too, are his first wife swathed in a gown of delicate pink, reading under a tree in dappled sunlight, and his stepdaughters, at easels in an orchard filled with blossoming trees, or in a rowboat drifting through the famous green and lavender lily pond.
