Le bassin aux nymphéas

“The effect of sincerity is to give one's work the character of a protest.

The painter being concerned only with conveying his impression, simply seeks to be himself and no one else.”

(Claude Monet - French painter, initiator and leader of the Impressionist style, 1840-1926)


This is a new image which comes in the series of pictures that I have been working like the Water Lilies (or Nympheas) by French Impressionist Claude Monet (1840-1926).

This game is coming from my imagination only where the impressionist painter could have been painting his series (about 250) of oil paintings not in Giverny but in India as I shot this in the beautiful and serene Lodhi Garden in Delhi.

It was before a storm at dusk so I also borrowed the title to Monet, "Le bassin aux nympheasr" (Water Lily Pond).

The Lodhis were a pashtun Muslim dynasty which ruled much of Northern India during the 16th century.
