Gift of Herbert Ascherman, Jr. 2022.117
At his home in Giverny, France, Claude Monet created a Japanese-inspired water garden beginning in the 1890s.
When photographing that garden in 1989, Cleveland artist Herbert Ascherman chose an elongated, vertical panoramic format. It evokes the Japanese scroll paintings that influenced the Impressionist painters, including Monet. To view other depictions of the garden at Giverny in the museum’s collection see Monet’s painting Water Lilies (Agapanthus), c. 1915–26 (1960.81) and photographs by Sally Gall (1993.216) and Lynn Geesaman (2000.90).
