モネの庭/Monet's Garden

念願かなってやっとモネの庭へ行ってきました。やはり、ココは素敵です。天気がよかったからなおさらなんでしょうか。全てが輝いて見えました。モネの睡蓮の咲く池はもちろんのこと、写真に収めても写真で伝わりきれないほどの素晴らしい庭。こんな素敵な庭に囲まれての生活なんて夢のようです。

It took a long time to visit Monet Garden from my wish lists. The weather was perfect and many different variety of flowers were blossomed. Of course, the pond was very popular and nice, but also his garden was so beautiful. We've took many photos, but it was very difficult to capture how nice the garden was in the photos. It would be nice to have the kind of garden.
お庭を見た後に、モネが住んでいた家の中も見る事が出来ました。彼は本当に日本が好きで、彼の「浮世絵コレクション」が見れます。錚々たる浮世絵師の200点以上の作品が、リビングルーム、書斎、寝室と至る所に飾られていました。不思議なことに、彼の家には彼が描いた絵の数々と浮世絵のコレクションだけなんです。普通だったらもっと他の人の作品等もあってもおかしくないと思うけど、とにかく、浮世絵に惹かれたようです。日本人の私でも、これだけの浮世絵を一つの美術館で見ることはまずできないのではないでしょうか。彼の時代にこれだけの浮世絵を集めるなんてすごい労力がいったように思います。彼の日本好きが興じて池に太鼓橋をかけたりしたそうですよ。日本人としてはちょっと嬉しいですよね。024.gif そして、キッチンも色合いや使いやすそうにたくさんの鍋が壁にかけられていました。

After we saw his garden, we also could see in his house. Monet loved Ukiyo-e and he had more than 200 pieces of Ukiyo-e collections. These Ukiyo-e were hanging at all his room except his study room which were hanging his paintings. It was a quite amazing that he was only interested in Ukiyo-e. He didn't collect any other paintings.

This painting is called Ukiyo-e.

Anyway, I've never seen hundreds of Ukiyo-e collection all it once. It must be difficult to collect them in his era. He loved Japanese style of garden and he also made arched bridges which you can see in his paintings. His kitchen looks cosy and usable. Many pans were hanging on the wall and he must loved cooking... (It was my guessing... 037.gif )

モネの庭には、本当に色とりどりの花が咲き乱れていて圧巻でした。今度は、違う季節に訪れてみたいと思いました。モネが大好きな母にとってもこの庭は思い出に残ったようです。

It was a spectacular garden that I've never seen anything like it before. We would like to visit again in a different season. My mum who loves Monet will always have good memories of this garden.
