In 1903, Claude Monet (French, 1840-1926) embarked on a series of canvases depicting the water garden at his home in Giverny. In the paintings reproduced in this folio, scattered lily pads suggest the water’s surface, receding into space. The pattern of light and dark beneath the lilies suggests the reflection on the water-sky and the trees on a distant bank. When Monet exhibited 48 of his waterscapes in 1909, critics compared them to poetry and music.
Printed with soy based inks on high-quality, 250 gsm recycled card stock, this set of 10 blank notecards (5 each of 2 designs) includes 10 soft white envelopes and comes packaged in a decorative wallet-style folio.
