The thick surface of this panel indicates the prolonged duration of its making.  Monet worked on this and other paintings over a period of several years, building up layers of paint as he altered and refined the compositions. This ethereal image features softly flowing passages of could reflections on a tranquil surface punctuated by pink lilies.  The notably delicate palette of this painting differentiates it from others and suggests a silvery light suffusing the ponds surface.
