The Water Lily Pond is an oil painting produced in 1899 by French painter Claude Monet.
Monet at Giverny constructed his own water garden in five years with the help of other six gardeners. The water gardens had been transformed into an aquatic paradise and several things were imported from Japan which includes willows, irises and water lilies later used as subjects for his paintings. Out of the six gardeners, Monet employed a Gardner specifically to maintain the plants are correct shapes and size according to the scene in paintings.
Monet built an arched bridge with the help of six gardeners over his water garden in the Japanese style. The motive behind building a bridge was to cultivate aquatic plants. The water garden was built on the ground under his property name. After the garden was ready, Monet took different light conditions and painted several canvases depicting them. Monet visited the garden three times in a single day to study the changing light at different times and noting down the details.
