A brand new VR experience now showing in the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris celebrates the work of beloved painter Claude Monet.

The app, named Claude Monet – The Waterlily Obsession, was directed by Nicolas Thépot and created with the help of ARTE France, Lucid Realities, Camera lucida productions under HTC’s Vive Arts program. As you can see in the trailer below, it allows visitors to step inside Monet’s work and explore it like never before.

Things kick off in Monet’s garden, where the artist carried out much of his beloved work. You’ll then visit his workshop and even end up in the Orangerie Museum itself.

Arte is also releasing a 360 video on its various platforms that will give fans at home a chance to appreciate Monet’s work. The VR installation, meanwhile, will run until March 11th next year though you can also jump into it via Viveport for $2.95 (or via the Viveport Subscription).
