Maintaining Monets masterpiece.

Claude Monets ( 1840 - 1926 ) water lilies pond ( Giverny - France ) is full of asymmetries and curves.

..........It was inspired by the Japanese gardens that Monet knew from the prints he collected avidly.

.....He drew his inspiration from here, and was always looking for mist and transparencies, dedicating himself less to flowers than to reflections in water, a kind of inverted world transfigured by the liquid element.
