Summary:Claude Monet (1840-1926) devoted the last 25 years of his career to paintings of the Japanese-style pond and gardens of his house in Giverny, France. Two of these luminous panels - Water Lilies (1914-26), a mural-sized triptych, and Water Lilies (1914-26), a single canvas - are among the most beloved works in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. This lively volume recounts the history of Monet's Water Lilies at the Museum - including the destruction of two works in a fire in 1958 - and underscores the resonance of these paintings with the art and artists of the last half-century.
