The famous French Impressionist Claude Monet set out to create a garden which would exemplify the impressionists obsession with color and light - a garden influenced by Japanese styles, specifically arranged with regard to shade and composition, and yet looking carefree and unplanned, like a happy, spontaneous accident of beauty. His gardens at Giverny became a mecca for artists and still continues to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, including a large number of artists like Peter Ellenshaw.
