Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies (Le bassin aux nymphéas in French) was an impressionist painting by French painter Claude Monet, created on Earth in the 19th century. By the 24th century, the painting hung at in the Palais de la Concorde, in a meeting room which was thus dubbed the Monet Room.

Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies was a favorite painting of Federation President Min Zife, who left the painting in a prominent position when the Monet Room was converted to a high-security space during the Dominion War. Zife considered it a symbol of all the art and culture of the Federation, which he was intent on preserving. (ST - Destiny novel: Gods of Night)
Nanietta Bacco retained the painting in the room, often wondering what Monet would think of his painting being displayed in a room where the business of war was often discussed. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Raise the Dawn)
