The Detroit Institute of Arts will house Claude Monet's Waterlily Pond, Green Harmony for three months starting Oct. 1. The painting is on loan from Paris' Musée d'Orsay  It will be the only work on display in the gallery next to the Rivera court.

The painting is just one of hundreds that Monet painted of his French flower garden and pond. Waterlily Pond depicts his personal view of the space. The garden was the subject of his oil paintings from 1893 until he died in 1926.
