See the inspiration behind the French Impressionist's masterworks as the New York Botanical Garden re-creates the artist's verdant gardens in Giverny. The institution reproduced views of water lilies, a Japanese footbridge and the Grand Allée that appeared in the painter's work. Visitors will be able to compare the replicas to two authentic Monets (The Artist's Garden in Giverny and Irises) and historical photographs exhibited in "The Artist in the Garden."

as far as seeing beautiful flowers this is ok and more than ok... but for those who know the Giverny Monnet Gardens for real... this is just "too short".... beautifull work and thumbs up to the staff that keeps the space alive changing the flowers that need to be replaced daily... i missed the emotion, the "grandeur" of the real place.
