de Young Museum - Monet: The Late Years

ID : 42617   
« back to classes page
The exhibition features fifty paintings by Claude Monet dating mainly from 1913 to 1926, the final phase of his long career. During his late years, Monet stayed close to home, inspired by the variety of elements making up his own garden at Giverny, a village located 45 miles from Paris. With its evolving scenery of flowerbeds, footpaths, willows, wisteria, and nymphaea, the garden became a personal laboratory for the artist’s sustained study of natural phenomena. The exhibition focuses on the series that Monet invented, and just as important, reinvented, in this setting. It reconsiders the conventional notion that many of the late works painted on a large scale were preparatory for the Grand Decorations, rather than finished paintings in their own right. Boldly balancing representation and abstraction, Monet’s radical late works redefined the master of Impressionism as a forebear of Modernism. Afterwards, enjoy a no-host lunch in the cafe.
