David visits the enchanting village of Giverny, 45 miles northwest of Paris, and the last home of Claude Monet, considered the father of Impressionism. David discusses Monet's continuing development from a teenage caricaturist to maverick Impressionist, and final evolution into expressionism at the end of his life with his carefully cultivated water lily garden as his inspiration. David paints that same water lily garden using Monet's techniques. He then works with his students who are painting Monet's famous Japanese bridge, discussing his lasting influence on painting with his revolutionary new language for releasing color from the outlines of static shapes.
