All things botanical have long inspired artists. Many famous artists were also avid gardeners and used their gardens as subject matter. Impressionist painter Claude Monet (French, 1840-1926) and his colleague, Auguste Renoir (French, 1841-1911) tended flower and herb gardens at their famous artist colony of Argenteuil, France in the early 1870s.
