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."
