|| This part of the top floor of the Winter Palace was
living quarters for courtiers. It now houses a display of the works
of Claude Monet (1840-1926), one of the founders of Impressionism.
The Hermitage possesses eight paintings by the artist - from the early
Lady in a Garden of 1867 to the late Waterloo Bridge of
1903. The Corner of the Garden at Montgeron and The Pond
at Montgeron (both commissioned by the financier Ernest Hoschede)
date from the heyday of Impressionism. This room also contains three
Impressionist landscapes by Alfred Sisley (1839-1899).
