Water Lilies

Musée de l'Orangerie
November 14, 2018-March 11, 2019

undefined

During the last period of Monet’s life (1900–26), he spent most of his time in his garden at Giverny, endlessly painting and reworking the flowers, light, reflections, depth, and changing seasons of the lily pond. On November 12, 1918, the day after the Armistice of Compiègne, Monet offered to donate two paintings to France in honor of the victory. This offer became the basis for his eventual gift of eight of these Waterlilies murals, known as the Nymphéas series, which have been permanently installed at the Musée de l'Orangerie in Paris according to the original plan since 1927, a few months after Monet’s death. 

In Partnership with the Musée de l'Orangerie and as part of the exhibition Focus Collection: Monet – Clemenceau, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI and Monet’s extraordinary gift, we presented the exquisite VR project: Claude Monet, The Water Lily Obsession. Developed by Lucid Realities, the project fully immerses visitors in the breathtaking waterlilies garden, seeing every detail coming to life in the transient light as if through Monet’s eyes. The visitors are also immersed in Monet’s color pallet and brushstrokes in an unexpected experience, before being brought back to Monet’s studio 100 years ago.
