Monet: The Late Years
Through 52 paintings, the exhibition traces the evolution of Monet’s work from 1913, when he journeyed to an increasingly bold and abstract works until his death in 1926. In addition, many unfamiliar works from the artist’s final years are shown, several of which are seen for the first time in the United States. Majestic panoramas are displayed alongside late easel paintings, demonstrating Monet’s continued vitality and scope. The exhibition redefines Monet—widely known as the greatest landscape painter of the Impressionists—as one of the most original artists of the modern age.
