Morning Eye Candy: Poetry and the Art of the Perennial Garden

Posted in Monet's Garden, Photography on June 4 2012, by Matt Newman

Mallarm√© and Rimbaud live here. Their words, at least. Monet’s Garden, beyond Giverny, is about exploring Impressionism as a movement, dipping into the lyricism of the era’s Symbolist poets. You’ll find selections from some of Monet’s gifted contemporaries placed throughout the Perennial Garden.
