A little bit of France in the Bronx

One of the most popular attractions in France is now in New York City. The New York Botanical Garden brought Claude Monet famous gardens from Giverny to the Bronx.

The exhibition “Monet’s Gardens” recreates the place were the impressionist French painter spent the last years of his life, translating to the canvas his stunning garden, the water lilies he loved so much, the Japanese bridge over the lake, the colorful flowers.

You can stroll around the Eunid A. Haupt Conservatory and enjoy the stunning collection of flowers, a mirror of what Monet saw in his own gardens. Gardens he took special care of. The artist took proud in his place in the French little town and even sold his plants, in fact, you can see the receipts of same of his exchanges in the Rodina Gallery. But that is not the only thing you can see in this part of the Botanical Gardens, two rare paintings of Monet are there for the exhibition, one of them never before shown in the US.

The Conservatory is beautiful and it is easy to see how Monet was inspired by his home in Giverny, the New York Botanical Gardens makes a truly lovely homage to the french artist.
