The second room of the Water Lilies is ditinguished by the presence of weeping willow tress creating a sort of ponctuation. Here again, there is no horizon and no perspective. We only see part of the willows.
When it opened to the public in 1927, a few months after the artist's death, the Water Lilies didn't find its public since the critics then were more interested in the avant-garde's research. After the Second World War, the Orangerie received a greater public thanks to the influence of the lyrical abstraction theorist who saw the roots of abstarct art in the Water Lilies.
