Kids can explore Claude Monet’s garden in this video, featuring the painting “The Japanese Footbridge.” Monet combined his love of nature and art by planting gardens wherever he lived. In order to create this water garden at his home in Giverny, France, Monet had to divert a small stream and form a pond, which he surrounded with flowers and bushes. His prized water garden became a subject he explored obsessively; he painted more than 200 paintings of his beloved lily pond. On view in the West Building, Main Floor, Gallery 87. http://www.nga.gov/fcgi-bin/tinfo_f?object=74796 ----- Find the Children's Video Tour at http://www.nga.gov/education/timetravel/index.shtm
