Earrings "Water lilies"

Jewellery inspired by the Water Lilies (Nympheas) of Claude Monet

A creation both monumental and intimate, the Water Lilies is the expression and culmination of the artistic thought of Claude Monet. A wild project of a painter who wanted to explore all the variations of light in his Giverny garden, the Water Lilies are displayed in two oval rooms and invite the visitor for endless contemplation.
Just after the Great War, Monet wanted his work to take on this dimension both aesthetic and poetic and to offer in this way a refuge to Parisians, a place of peace and of meditation. In choosing the Orangerie of the Tuileries to harbor his work devoted to nature and peace, Claude Monet hoped to create a perfect correspondence between the project of the Water Lilies and its enclosure. Flanked by the Seine on the south and hidden away on a high terrace of the garden, the Orangerie offered a setting away from the city favorable for contemplation. The Water Lilies have been exhibited there since 1927.
