Girl with a Pearl Earring – Johannes Vermeer

The Water-Lily Pond – Claude Monet

Did you know that Monet was also a passionate horticulturist?

In 1893, the renowned artist purchased land with a pond near his existing home in Giverny, intending to build something that was both pleasing to the eye and an inspiration for his paintings.

The result was his water-lily garden, which is framed beautifully in his work The Water-Lily Pond.

Although an incredible artwork from a distance, it’s only when you zoom in closer that you can truly see the extraordinary level of detail and colour that went into its creation.

Self-Portrait with Monkey – Frida Kahlo

Renowned for her artistic and technical expression, Frida’s self-portraits offered insight into her troubled personal life.

At the time of painting Self-Portrait with Monkey, Frida was struggling with a complicated romantic relationship and an increasing decline in her physical health. This painting is wrought with symbolism and provides clues to her feelings at the time.

The Gardener – Vincent van Gogh

Originally produced around mid-September 1889 while van Gogh was a patient at a French asylum, The Gardener is one of the results of his ‘manic’ obsession with portraits at the time.

An incredible combination of reds, greens, yellows and blues, with splashes of interweaving colours, the artwork shows his fascination with the peasant way of life.

Zooming into the artwork will reveal van Gogh’s incredible eye for detail and mastery of the paint brush.

In The Conservatory – Manet

An oil painting by renowned French artist Édouard Manet, this artwork is famous for its ambiguity, and is often considered one of the most scandalous artworks of its time.

The deeper you dive into this painting, the more complex, ambiguous and fascinating it becomes.
