Things you always never wanted to know

  • The Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926) painted more than 300 pictures of the same lily pads. The now-famous plants grew in a pond behind his house.

Rodin, forgotten in the last years of his life, was refused financial aid several times by the French state, even while the statues he had donated to the country were kept warmly housed in museums. In the winter of 1917 Rodin's application for a room in one of these museums was rejected, and a month later he died in a garret from frostbite. [Read article]
