Claude Monet was an impressionist (a kind of artist, named because their art gives an impression of the subject) who was particularly close with nature, therefore many of his later paintings were of his gardens. He is well known for doing many paintings of the same subject, often from different angles or when the light is shining on the subject differently. One his most famous examples of this was a series of paintings on water lilies that he did in his gardens in Giverny.
