One of the reasons I went to the Norton Museum of Art, other than to photograph the BMW, was to see the painting ” Water Lily Pond (Clouds),” one of over two-hundred and fifty canvases created by Claude Monet depicting painted gardens and natural subjects. It is beautiful beyond description, even thought the museum tries with this - “the blooms appear to drift over a vast inverted sky with clouds that appear closer to the viewer than the water itself.” The painting was sold at auction in 1917, the viewers thought it was hung upside down.
