The Impressionists were the Rebels in the 19th Century Art-World

These painters chose to break away from the European traditional style of painting of their times. Instead they painted outdoors, capturing the changing light and showing how it defined the colors of the moment. They painted with brighter palette of colors and used coarser brushstrokes. Many of them were not appreciated in their life times and some even died penniless.

Exhibition: Monet: Places

February 22, 2020 to June 01, 2020
Museum Barberini Potsdam, Germany

Claude Monet often would choose one subject and paint it again and again, under different lights and weather conditions. He has many such series where he focused on a single subject but painted at different times. This includes the series of the majestic Cathedral in Rouen, the views of Antibes & his paintings from London, Venice and Zaandam.

Monet was never interested in the landmarks per se but rather in the changing light and weather conditions which provided different effects on the subject itself. This exhibition explores Monet’s use of light and color on the many places he painted.

Exhibition: Monet & Chicago

When: May 10–Sep 7, 2020
Where: Art Institute of Chicago

This exhibition is celebrating Chicago’s special relationship to the master of Impressionism, Claude Monet (1840-1926).  During Monet’s lifetime, Chicago was one of the first cities in America to recognize Monet’s greatness. Chicago art collectors such as Bertha Honoré Palmer and Martin A. Ryerson bought many of his paintings. Ryerson even traveled to Monet’s house in Giverny in 1920 to buy Monet’s paintings.

In 1903, the Chicago Art Institute was the first American museum to purchase a Claude Monet painting. Today the museum owns 33 paintings and 13 drawings by the artist, boasting the third largest collection of Monet artworks outside of Paris and Boston.

The exhibition “Monet & Chicago” will showcase more than 65 Claude Monet paintings, including some rarely seen still lifes, landscapes and seascapes. The paintings span his long artistic career, starting from his early caricatures made in Le Havre to his later iconic water lilies paintings inspired from his garden in Giverny.

Monet: Questioning Nature

When: 11 July until 25 October, 2020
Where: Artizon Museum, Tokyo Japan

The Impressionism giant, Claude Monet, spent over 70 years observing and capturing nature. Landscape painting was what Monet loved the most. He would set up his easel outdoors, observe the light and plein air paint the views around him.

Monet rewrote all the rules of art. He painted with short thick brush strokes in order to capture the ‘impression’ of the subject rather than concentrate on the fine details. He also painted with a vibrant palette of colors.

Claude Monet was a huge lover of nature. Where ever he went, he painted his version of the beautiful world. He painted landscapes from all over Normandy, villages along the River Seine, towns in southern France, his beloved garden in Giverny and even places abroad.

This exhibition pays tribute to the Monet’s rendition of nature. For this exhibition, Monet artworks are on loaned from public and private collections in Japan and the Musee D’Orsay and and Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris.  In addition, there will be video installations aiming to provide the visitor with an appreciation of the rich legacy Monet left behind.
