Rick's Video of the Month: October 2011
A Water Lily Stroll with Monet
It's a rare treat to view a masterpiece in the very place where the artist himself intended it to be displayed. As he was painting his iconic water lilies, Claude Monet would have declared, "L'Orangerie, mais oui!"
This past summer, my TV crew and I got permission to film in the Musée de l'Orangerie, all alone with the spirit of the impressionist master. This one-minute "phone movie" gives you a preview of what you'll see when the show is released in 2012 — and a behind-the-scenes peek at our hi- tech camera-panning technique.
Rick Steves' YouTube Channel is a great place to watch more of Rick's "phone movies" — plus clips from his TV shows, interviews, lectures and other public appearances.
