A water lily pond and a garden he created himself in the small village of Giverny, near Paris, was the starting point at the turn of the century for Claude Monet's pioneering development as a painter. The significance and extent of his achievement was not fully grasped until after the Second World War. Now, at the beginning of the 21st century, a large number of paintings ranging from Monet via painterly abstraction right up to digital Impressionism are being shown in this exhibition in order to explore the path Monet followed.
