  • "My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece."
    Claude Monet
  • "I can only draw what I see."
    Claude Monet
  • "I insist upon doing it alone. Much as I enjoyed making the trip there with Renoir as a tourist, I'd find it hard to work there together. I have always worked better alone and from my own impressions."
    Claude Monet
  • "It seems to me as if I can see nature and I can catch it all. It is by observation and reflection that I discover how. That is what we are working on, continuously."
    Claude Monet
  • "For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment; but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life.. the air and the light which vary continually. For me, it is only the, surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value."
    Claude Monet
  • "To me the motif itself is an insignificant factor; what I want to reproduce is what lies between the motif and me. Other painters paint a bridge, a house, a boat.. I want to paint the air in which the bridge, the house and the boat are to be found.. the beauty of the air around them, and that is nothing less than the impossible."
    Claude Monet
  • "One is too taken up with all that one sees and hears in Paris, however strong one is, and what I do here will at least have the merit of being unlike anyone else, at least I believe so, because it will simply be the expression of what I, and only I have felt. The further I get, the more I regret how little I know, that’s what hinders me the most. I don't think I will spend much time in Paris now, a month at the very most, each year."
    Claude Monet
  • "It is by force of observation and reflection that one finds. So let us grind away and grind away constantly."
    Claude Monet
  • "Everything I have earned has gone into these gardens."
    Claude Monet
