Monet’s Japanese Footbridge over the Water-lily Pond in Giverny

As Monet’s Japanese Footbridge is our art reproduction of the month, I thought I’d show you our actual reproduction oil painting of it.

Monet moved from Paris to Giverny in 1883 where he lived until his death.  The Japanese Foot-bridge, which spans across the water-lily pond he created, appears in several of his works from the 1890s onwards.  In fact, Monet painted approximately 250 paintings of his water lilies (Nymphéas).

Fabulous Masterpieces has been asked to commission many different versions of Monet’s Water lilies.
