Monet later concentrated on the water's surface and did not put the bridge in his paintings. In the collection of The National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. Gift of Victoria Nebeker Coberly, in memory of her son John W. Mudd, and Walter H. and Leonore Annenberg.
"Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies" by Claude Monet. Monet painted this in 1899. The artist admitted that he spent many hours contemplating the lilies on the water long before he picked up his palette. Monet's first intense period of work at the pond began in the summer of 1899. When the weather turned cold, he completed six works to his satisfaction in the studio. The following year, Claude Monet would afford his undivided attention to his water garden. Oil on canvas (36x29") #monet #lillies
