Must See Impressionist Art-Monet Exhibitions Around The World
For all fans of 19th century French Impressionism art & in particular, the giant of them all – Claude Monet, below is a comprehensive list of Monet exhibitions all over the world in 2023.
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: Children of Impressionism
When: 31 March 2023 until 2 July, 2023
Where: Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny, France
This exhibition is dedicated to the different facets of childhood at the end of the 19th century. It will feature artworks of Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot.
The Impressionist masters loved to paint their families but also those of their friends, their merchants, their sponsors. Children held a special place in these intimate paintings. At a time when the Third Republic was engaging in an active education policy for the working classes, with Jules Ferry as its figurehead, artists seized on the subject of children in the face of modern society. Through various themes – maternity, nannies, children of artists, education, gardens, games, beaches, animals, adolescence, and daydreams – and around a hundred works, the exhibition will explore the ambiguities of the theme, beyond archetypal representations of childhood.

Exhibition: MMCA Lee Kun-hee Collection: Monet, Picasso and the Masters of the Belle Epoque
When: 21 September, 2022 until 26 February 2023

These artists were all great masters who came together in the art hub of Paris as mentors and mentees, older and younger artists, and colleagues. They supported each other’s growth and greatly advanced the development of Western art in the twentieth century.
This exhibition is designed to expand the appreciation of the works of these eight masters by focusing on the diverse relationships they fostered in Paris. Moreover, it intends to explore both the correlations between the paintings and their links to Picasso’s ceramics. The exhibition invites visitors to experience these beautiful moments of friendship and mutual respect that took place in Paris.

The Sun: Source of Light in Art
When: February 25 – June 11, 2023
Where: Museum Barberini, Potsdam, Germany
Claude Monet’s 1872 painting Impression, Sunrise, which gave Impressionism its name and now marks its 150th year, shows the red disk of the rising sun as the focus of the composition. The painting is the point of departure for the exhibition The Sun: Source of Light in Art, which explores the iconography of the sun from antiquity to the present. As a sign or personification of divine power, a protagonist in mythological narratives, an atmospheric element in landscape imagery, and an intensification of color in modern painting, the sun plays a key role in European art.
The exhibition brings together around eighty works — sculptures, paintings, manuscripts, prints, and books — from antiquity to the present, including paintings by Peter Paul Rubens, J. M. W. Turner, Caspar David Friedrich, and Sonja Delaunay.
