For a span of forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, Claude Monet resided in his home at Giverny. During this extended period, he personalized the house according to his own preferences, tailoring it to the requirements of his family and professional life.
Initially, the house, named House of the Cider-Press due to the nearby apple press on the little square, was considerably smaller. Monet extended it on both sides, resulting in a house that is presently only 40 meters long and 5 meters deep.
Monet transformed the adjacent barn into his first studio by adding a wooden floor and stairs leading to the main house. Although Monet usually painted in the open air, he required a space to store and complete his canvases.
Monet had his own apartment above the studio, featuring a large bedroom and bathroom. The left side of the house was dedicated to Monet’s workspace and sleeping quarters.
