Thursday 2 February 2012 Monet in Giverny opens February 4
Monet in Giverny: Landscapes of Reflection opens at the Cincinnati Art Museum on February 04, 2012 showing through May 13, 2012.
Monet's late works depicting iconic motifs from his garden in Giverny, such as the Japanese footbridge, water lilies, and wisterias are among the most innovative of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Taking reflection in all of its meanings as the governing theme—as a literal motif as well as a metaphor for both Monet’s experimentation and our own thoughtful viewing of his painting—this exhibition will bring together twelve masterpieces to look anew at the range of Monet’s output in Giverny and to consider the importance of his garden as a continuing source
