DETROIT (AP) - One of Claude Monet’s most famous paintings is in Detroit for a three-month stay.

“Waterlily Pond, Green Harmony” is on loan to the Detroit Institute of Arts from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. It’s to be on display at the DIA from Wednesday through Jan. 4.

The painting is one of hundreds Monet created of his flower garden and pond in Giverny, France.

According to the DIA, Monet’s garden became the focus of his paintings for more than two decades until his death in 1926. He painted several versions of the garden’s pond from the same viewpoint, but in different light conditions.

“Waterlily Pond, Green Harmony” is the only work on display in a gallery adjacent to Rivera court. The exhibit is free with museum admission.
