Inspired by Claude Monet

Impressionist artist Claude Monet was one of Donna’s childhood heroes. She remembers seeing his paintings in the National Gallery and being in awe of their scale, his expressive mark making and use of colour.

Lily is based on one of Claude Monet’s most popular series of paintings Water Lilies. During the last thirty years of his life, his flower garden at his home in Giverny was the main focus of his artistic output.
