What is there to say about me? What can there be to say, I ask you, about a man who is interested in nothing in the world but his painting - and also his garden and flowers?

-----------------------------------

Every day I hope you will.

-----------------------------------

In front of you a tree, a house, a field or anything else. Just think of this: here is a small square of blue, pink, green oval, yellow stripe and paint exactly as they appear to you.

-----------------------------------

What I will do here will at least have the merit of not being like anyone else, because it will be the impression of what I would have felt alone.

-----------------------------------

I only looked at what the universe showed me."

-----------------------------------

"What I will do is to feel what I would have felt."

-----------------------------------

"Apart from painting and gardening, I'm no good at anything."

-----------------------------------

"My most beautiful masterpiece is my garden."

-----------------------------------

"What I will do here will at least have the merit of being unlike anyone else, because it will be the impression of how I would have felt on my own."

-----------------------------------

"Color is my daily obsession, my joy and torment."

-----------------------------------

"The pattern is something secondary, what I want to reproduce is what's between the pattern and me."

-----------------------------------

"It took me a while to understand my water lilies... I cultivated them without thinking of painting them... A landscape does not impregnate you in a day.... And then, all of a sudden, I had the revelation of the fairy tales of my pond. I took my pallet. Since then, I have had little other model."

-----------------------------------

"I'm following nature without being able to grasp it, I may owe it to the flowers to have become a painter."

-----------------------------------

"When you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have in front of you, a tree, a house, a field or anything else. Just think of this: here is a small square of blue, pink, green oval, yellow stripe, and paint exactly as they appear to you, exact colors and shapes, until they give you your naive impression of the scene in front of you."

-----------------------------------

"White and black are perfect, but not so for colours and shapes. So I keep seeing yellow what is green and the rest more or less blue; it's not funny."

-----------------------------------

"I'm in awe, Giverny is a splendid country for me."

-----------------------------------

"Ah, gentlemen, I don't receive when I work, no, I don't receive. When I work, if I am interrupted, it cuts off my arms and legs, I am lost. You understand easily, I'm chasing a slice of color."

-----------------------------------

"My workshop! But I've never had a workshop before, and I don't understand why people lock themselves in a room. To draw, yes: to paint, no"

-----------------------------------

"While you philosophically seek the world in itself, I simply exert my effort on as many appearances as possible, in close correlation with unknown realities."

-----------------------------------

"Color is my daily obsession, my joy and torment."

-----------------------------------

"What I will do here will at least have the merit of being unlike anyone else, because it will be the impression of how I would have felt on my own."

-----------------------------------

"The pattern is something secondary, what I want to reproduce is what's between the pattern and me."

-----------------------------------

"I only looked at what the universe showed me."

-----------------------------------

"While you philosophically seek the world in itself, I simply exert my effort on as many appearances as possible, in close correlation with unknown realities."

-----------------------------------

I want to paint the air in which the bridge, the house, the boat is located. The beauty of the air where they are, and it's nothing but the impossible."

-----------------------------------

"And the garden? Are there still flowers? I wish there were more chrysanthemums when I got back. If it's freezing, make nice bouquets."

-----------------------------------

"What I am becoming, you can guess: I work and not without difficulty, because my sight goes away every day, and then I take great care of my garden: it is a joy for me, and, in the beautiful days we have had, I rejoice and admire nature: with that, we do not have time to get bored."

-----------------------------------

"It took me a while to understand my water lilies... I cultivated them without thinking of painting them... A landscape does not impregnate you in a day.... And then, all of a sudden, I had the revelation of the fairy tales of my pond. I took my pallet. Since then, I have had little other model."
