The Quiz: Which artist spent years painting the water lilies in his pond?

A Degas
B Rembrandt
C Monet

Claude Monet lived in the French village of Giverny on the right bank of the Seine and was entranced by the water lilies that covered his pond. Perhaps ‘obsessed’ is a better word—he created about 250 paintings of the floating flowers. His son Michel donated the property to the Académie des Beaux-Arts, and in 1980, the house and gardens became a museum. You can gaze at Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’ in art galleries around the world.

The correct answer to this quiz is Monet.
