During the last 25 years of Monet’s life, he painted little else except waterscapes like this, which show the pond in his Japanese-style garden, and the water lilies that float on it. The earliest of these garden paintings show a Japanese bridge, trees, and sky as well as the pond. The view of water lilies here was very unconventional for its time. There is no horizon; the subject is the surface of the pond, which is at once a mirror of the sky above and a window into the world within the pool.
