Monet jigsaw puzzle "Water Lilies"

The Water Lilies, a series of more than 250 works, painted from 1914 to 1926, depict a watery landscape filled with water lilies, willow branches and reflexions of trees and clouds. According to Monet, they are "the illusion of an endless whole, of water without horizon or bank". Their monumentality and the absence of human figure give the Water Lilies an abstract quality, creating a manifestation of impressionism that is often considered disconcerting.

Presented to France by Claude monet the day after the armistice of November 11, 1918, the Water Lilies were installed in the Musée de l'Orangerie in 1927, several months after his death in accordance with his plans. The eight compositions were set out in the two consecutive oval rooms, which have the advantage of natural light from the roof, and are oriented from west to east, following the course of sun and one of the main routes through Paris along the Seine. The two ovals evoke the symbol of infinity, whereas the paintings represent the cycle of light throughout the day.
