MONET NYMPHEAS EARRINGS

In 1883 Monet moved to a home at Giverny northwest of Paris. He eventually bought the property and planted his famous gardens. One of their most notable elements was the lily pond with a Japanese bridge. Its shimmering surface became a frequent and ever larger subject of his paintings. In this Water Landscape Monet excludes the shoreline and depicts only the water's surface and reflections of trees at the pond's edge, thus giving the viewer an ambiguous, floating perspective.

These earrings are custom made to reflect the Wadsworth Atheneum's painting, Nympheas, Water Landscape, 1907 by Claude Monet.

Finish: Solid brass, giclee print. Ear wires are hypo-allergenic.

Dimensions: Hangs approximately 2 inches.
