Thanks to the history of this location, which was the cradle of impressionism in 1850, where every painter who is famous today came to find inspiration in the water, the skies and the gardens, this experience is as meaningful as any.
Today, as then, the rooms in which those artists stayed are full of endless charm and quaintness and offer the same views of the river estuary and our historic cottage-style edifice as depicted in “La Route sous la neige”, the famous painting by Claude Monet.
To gain a deeper understanding of “impressionism” and the full array of its colour schemes, Gervaise, a female artist and native of Honfleur, will be your guide for a course in painting in which she will help you to relive a range of pictorial emotions. In the heart of the rose garden, you will also discover her painting exhibition.
As a way of complementing this artistic immersion, why not discover the following sites:
The Eugène Boudin Museum and its wonders, Giverny, which still resonates with the memory of Claude Monet, and the Museum of Modern Art at Le Havre, a true treasure-trove of impressionist art.
