Claude Monet's 'Irises' probably evolved alongside his 'grandes décorations' in his vast purpose-built studio at Giverny. Here, Monet has applied thick purples, blues and greens using bold, even crude strokes. The effects were possibly induced by double cataracts which altered his vision. This painting can be seen in Room 41: [ Bit.ly Link ]

The music that the boy sings from is typical of part books printed in Venice in the 1520s and 30s: [ Bit.ly Link ]
