“Monet, An Eye for Landscapes: Innovation in 19th Century French Landscape Paintings”
This event has ended.
The NMWA and the Pola Museum of Art are two museums that boast the finest Monet collections in Japan, and here they join forces to present a new exhibition of Monet landscapes. This exhibition examines Monet’s work in terms of his composition of pictorial space and while offering comparison to the work of other artists it offers a spotlight upon Monet’s eye focused upon the landscape. The exhibition is centered on a core of 36 paintings spanning Monet’s entire oeuvre, alongside works from Manet to Picasso drawn from the masterpieces of modern art in the two museums, plus related materials. This display vividly reveals the unique pictorial space created by Monet and fathoms the secret depths of Monet’s eye, a vision that revolutionized modern landscape painting.
