Monet began to paint the lily pond in his garden at Giverny while he was completing his Rouen Cathedral series. The reflective surface of the pond, like the atmospheric envelope Monet wrapped around the cathedrals and other series subjects, unified his canvases. The sky has already disappeared from the painting; the lush foliage rises all the way to the horizon and space is flattened by the decorative arch of the bridge.
