In painting explorations, the oval is a space where material and
colour interact with the world.
Various heavenly bodies are attracted to their respective planets and describe
pure and perfect elliptical shapes as their orbit around them, just as the Earth
turns around the Sun.

Tribute to Monet's Water Lilies ....
Water Lily landscapes expressed the flowing time.
Orangerie Museum, Paris
Green reflections 1914-1915
(oil on canvas 200 x 850 cm)
Claude Monet (1840-1926), chief representative of the movement
Impressionist, was the first painter who created a series of landscapes
(the "Poplars", the "Water Lilies" …) to translate variations of in
light and color.
The Cycle of Water Lilies was a search for the infinite and gave rise to some 300 paintings.
With the “large Water Lilies”, Claude Monet imagined a panoramic series producing "the illusion
of an endless universe, of a wave with no horizon and no bank." He undertook to create this
series of painting only seventeen years later. He conceived a space on purpose, where the circle
evolved into an oval and then into a double ellipse, symbol of infinity.
Claude Monet donated his last work (eight -2 meters high- compositions) to the French State the
day after the Armistice in 1918.
In accordance with the deed, the architect Camille Lefevre developed this specific space (double
ellipse) in the Orangerie Museum in 1927.
The Water Lilies panorama enlaces the viewer. A feeling of infinity induces the viewer to dreaming
ins this space full of light. The orientation of the oval rooms of the Orangerie, aligned with the
sunrise - sunset (east-west) axis, reflects the cosmic order.
