Claude Monet – The Water Lily obsession

Claude Monet devoted the last thirty years of his life to painting the water lilies of his garden at Giverny in Normandy region. A colossal and obsessional work that cost the artist his view, but for which he himself created the subject – the famous pond hosting lily pads.

Monet’s research on the effects of light, his desire to express his sensations lead him to dilute the forms and gradually move away from a realistic representation of the world. The VR experience takes the viewer to Giverny and plunges him into the very heart of Monet’s work, in his eyes troubled by the loss of sight, in a whirlwind of colors. An immersive and sensory experience in this unique work
