The fine art design features "Nympheas" by master Impressionist Claude Monet. The artist was 73 in 1914 when he began this series of mural-sized canvases depicting his water garden near his home at Giverny. Although the artist had already produced hundreds of paintings of the water lilies, this series is among the most passionate; the loose brushstrokes and rich darkness in the water set it apart from his earlier impressions. In 1922, the Musee De L'Orangerie built an oval room to permanently display the murals, where visitors can be completely surrounded by peaceful flowers, as Monet was in his garden.
