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

Claude Monet and his fellow impressionists 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. Claude Monet continues to be the most celebrated French impressionist of them all. Below is a list of scheduled Claude Monet exhibitions around the world displaying his magnificent artworks!

Exhibition: Monet & Boston: Legacy Illuminated

When: April 17, 2021 until October 17, 2021
Where: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Claude Monet found beauty in the most unlikely places. His unconventional paintings of that time reflect this. In the exhibition “Monet and Boston: Legacy Illuminated” 25 Monet masterpieces are on display. These paintings are a collection of paintings from the MFA and from private collections of local Bostonians.

The exhibition is organized chronologically, starting with Monet’s paintings from his early years and later showing how the Japanese ukiyo-e  art influenced his later works.

Claude Monet never traveled to Boston himself during his lifetime but Bostonians very early on recognized his artistic talents and bought his artworks even while Monet was alive. This exhibition celebrates this historical connection between Boston and Monet and in honor of the Museum’s 150th anniversary in 2020.

Exhibition: Monet at Étretat

When: July 1, 2021 until October 17, 2021
Where: Seattle Art Musuem, USA

This exhibition focuses on Claude Monet’s love and fascination with the small and beautiful Normandy beach, Etretat. During the 1880s, Claude Monet was not yet an acknowledged artist. He was financially broke, unsure of his artistic abilities and frustrated that he could not adequately support his wife and family.

Monet often sought refuge from his turmoil in this quiet beach. He set up his easel and painted the scenery before him. In his canvases, Claude Monet captured Etretat with it’s white cliffs and fishing boats at different seasons and under varying light conditions.

“Etretat is becoming more and more amazing. Now is the real moment: the beach with all its fine boats; it is superb, and I am enraged not to be more skillful in rendering all this” Quote Claude Monet

This seaside town and beach was a place of inspiration for many other artists as well, such as Corot, Daubigny and Courbet, all of whom Monet admired.

All in all, Claude Monet created more than 90 masterpieces of the Etretat coastline. This exhibition will show some of these remarkable paintings.

Monet: Questioning Nature – A special exhibition from the Musée d’Orsay and Musée de l’Orangerie

When:  2 October , 2021 – 10 January, 2022
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.
