To discover Gardens and House of Claude Monet : PANORAMIC VIEW 2011
"One must absolutely make a pilgrimage to Giverny, to this flowered-sanctuary, to have a better understanding of the master,a better grasp of the sources of his inspiration and to imagine him still alive among us.“
Gerald Van der Kemp
“It is at Giverny that one had to have seen Claude Monet to know him, to his character, his love of life, and his innermost nature... This house and garden are also works of art and Monet spent his whole life creating and perfecting them.“
