This painting depicts the front of the artist's house in Giverny as seen from the garden. From 1913 until his death in 1926, Monet was largely preoccupied on painting his water lilies series. All his other works during that period are views of his garden. The canvasas he executed in the summer of 1925 show a more varied palette than in the previous years, with brushstrokes in the shape of short commas.
