Claude Monet’s Monumental Water Lilies Star in Sotheby’s Spring Sales

One of the finest large-scale Water Lilies paintings by Claude Monet will star in Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale on 12 May in New York. Ground-breaking in its nearly abstract treatment of the pond water’s surface, Le Bassin aux Nymphéas (1917-1919) is a powerful testament to Monet’s creativity in his mature years and represents an important bridge between Impressionism and Abstract Expressionism.
