“Monet’s Waterloo Bridge: Vision and Process” exhibition is a traveling show. This incredible show focuses on nine of Monet’s London Series.
From 1899 until 1901, Claude Monet came to London three times for extended periods. He stayed at the at the Savoy Hotel in London and painted the foggy scenes that he viewed from the hotel.
Monet’s Love Affair with London and it’s Fog
While in London, Monet frantically painted. He would start his work day by painting the Waterloo Bridge. He then started a new canvas for capturing the Charing Cross Bridge. Later in the day, Monet would change his focus on the Houses of Parliament. In every painting, Monet tried to capture the London fog which he found so alluring.
These beautiful paintings are not a replica of what he saw, but rather capture the impression of the scene under the light and atmosphere of that moment.
“Without fog London would not be beautiful”
Quote Claude Monet
Monet returned to his studio in Giverny to finish his London series of more than 30 paintings. Today the price tag of any one of these London paintings are around £10 million or more. This exhibition will be showing nine of these paintings.

It also includes his contemporaries such as Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and the post-impressionists Paul Gauguin & Henri Matisse.
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.
Monet – The Garden Paintings
When: 12 October 2019 till 02 February 2020
Where: Gemeentemuseum, The Hague, Netherlands
This exhibition will focus on Monet’s paintings between the period of 1900 to 1926. During these years, Monet lived a quiet and secluded life in Giverny. His gardens were his greatest artistic inspiration in these later years.
Today these paintings are some of his most famous masterpieces.
In this exhibition you will see paintings from his water lily pond, the weeping willows, the Japanese bridge and many more beautiful elements from his beautiful garden.
“My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece”
