Impressions of Monet: The Garden
For Impressions of Monet: The Garden, the centre field at the Flower Dome will presents landscapes that reflect scenes of Monet’s garden in his home in Giverny, France.
The famous garden served as the subject for many of his most famous paintings such as the Water Lilies, and it was where his artistic flair and deep love for gardening came together.
Not only will be Monet’s house recreated at the Flower Dome, but Gardens by the Bay’s horticulturists also recreate scenes from the house’s adjoining garden, which was called Clos Normand, and the land at the bottom of Clos Normand which Monet acquired later and was called the Water Garden.
Through the use of a carefully curated plant palette, Gardens by the Bay’s horticulturists will bring to life scenes from Clos Normand and the Water Garden. Plants similar to those in Monet’s original gardens, such as hydrangeas, weeping willows, digitalis, daisies, delphiniums and geraniums will be featured.
The unusual green Japanese bridge that is associated with him will also be recreated. Water lilies will also be featured in Gardens by the Bay’s floral display for the first time.
Impressions of Monet: The Experience
This multi-sensory experience celebrates the works and life of Claude Monet and his fellow Impressionists.
Visitors cross over from Flower Dome’s centre field and enter into the front façade of the house of Monet.
Visitors will be taken on an immersive adventure into French Impressionism, indulge their senses with the sights and sounds of 19th century Europe as seen through the eyes of Monet and the Impressionist painters.
To soundtrack of a powerful classical score, visitors will be able to marvel at the full breadth of the Impressionist movement through a stunning display of famous, inspirational images of the Impressionists’ works.
Breathtaking paintings will be projected at an enormous scale, illuminating the bold brushstrokes of Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas and many more.
We are imagining that it would be similar in nature the immersive Van Gogh exhibition that was held at Resorts World Sentosa.
