Take a walk in the artist’s garden in this video from the Children’s Video Tour, featuring Claude Monet’s “The Artist’s Garden at Vetheuil.” Monet painted this picture in 1880, while he was renting a house in Vétheuil, a village outside of Paris near the banks of the Seine. The artist was a passionate gardener, and planted flowers wherever he lived. The young boy depicted is Monet’s son, and on the steps behind him are other members of his extended household. On view in the West Building, Main Floor, Gallery 85. http://www.nga.gov/fcgi-bin/tinfo_f?object=52189 ----- Find the Children's Video Tour at http://www.nga.gov/education/timetravel/index.shtm
