A spectacular grand finale - a display of his three giant water lily paintings, the Agapanthus Triptych of 1916-1919. Each are four metres wide and two metres high. Monet’s Agapanthus Triptych is at the Royal Academy, there are about 120 works of which 35 are by Monet. Monet himself thought he was a greater gardener than painter.
