Monet Water Lily Pond Vase

Modgy Expandable flower vases do everything a glass vase does except collect dust, chip or break. Available in a variety of designs, Modgy plastic vases are durable and stable enough to hold a flower bouquet. These decorative vases are ideal for events, weddings, and any table top. Modgy vases are collapsible and economical, making it easy to keep a variety of colors and patterns tucked away for any occasion.  Claude Monet (French, 1840-1926) was one of the founders of the Impressionism, which sought to record a moment in time through short descriptive brush strokes and generously applied color on site, rather than a faithfully detailed reproduction rendered in a studio.

Passionate about painting outdoors directly from nature, Monet loved seeing the way the colors changed with the light, and often painted a series of works from the same vantage point at different times of day. At his home in Giverny, he constructed a water lily garden and crowned the composition with a Japanese footbridge. In the summer of 1899, he began to paint a series of eighteen views of this scene, including the one we have reproduced on our delightful vase.
