Monet, "Waterlillies"

This is "Waterlillies" by Monet. (French, Paris 1840–1926 Giverny) This is an oil on canvas painted in 1919. Waterlillies is part of a series of 250 pieces. I found this one to be more interesting than the others. I enjoyed the uses of greens with the blues. There are many shades of both colors in the work. I also enjoy Monet's paintings. I find it interesting that he had cataracts, which is an eye disfunction. So what we see is how he is seeing the waterlillies. Everything does not have to be clear in his works to fully notice everything.
