Exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany 2015 - Monet and the Birth of Impressionism

Place: Städel Museum, Frankfurt Germany

Date: March 11, 2015 - June 28, 2015

Presentation: This exhibition was devoted to the emergence and early development of Impressionism. The focus was on Monet as the movement’s key protagonist, and his fellow artists who revolutionized painting within just a few years. The Monet exhibition focused on the years from the early 1860s to 1880s and sheds light on the emergence of the radical change it brought about in the relationship between pictorial content and form. No art current before it had taken the play of colour and light to such an extreme dissolution of form. In their works the Impressionists concerned themselves with themes such as the relationship between man and nature, modern forms of recreation, and the acceleration of life through technical progress.

Some one hundred masterworks from collections in many countries, among others the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art and the National Gallery in London, were on view in the Monet exhibition presented exclusively in Frankfurt.

Past Exhibitions of Claude Monet's works in 2014-2015

Exhibition in Paris, France 2014 2015 - Paul Durand-Ruel The gamble of the Impressionists Manet, Monet, Renoir

Place: Musée du Luxembourg, Paris France

Date: October 9, 2014 – February 8, 2015

From Tuesday to Thurday 10:00 am to 7:00 pm; Monday and Friday from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm; Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm.

Presentation: This exhibition is dedicated to Paul Durand-Ruel (1831-1922), one of the greatest art dealers in the world at the turn of the 20th century and a major figure in the history of Impressionism. This painting «missionary» as Renoir liked to call him, contributed to the invention of the modern art market and gave an unprecedented international dimension to his gallery, particularly in the United States. At the turn of the 20th century, he had established the largest European and American Impressionist collections, both public and private.

The 80 paintings, drawings, photographs and documents, of the exhibition recount a crucial time, from the end of the 1860s to the turn of the 20th century, where an artistic avant-garde gained international recognition thanks to an enterprising and inventive dealer.

This exhibit will further be presented at the National Gallery, London from 4 March to 31 May 2015, then at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from 18 June to 13 September 2015.

Exhibition in Houston, TX USA 2014 2015 - Monet and the Seine: Impressions of a River

Place: The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston TX USA

Date: October 26, 2014 – February 1, 2015

Presentation: Monet and the Seine: Impressions of a River examines Claude Monet’s abiding fascination with the Seine by tracing his life along the iconic French waterway, both chronologically and geographically. Monet (1840–1926) used the river from an early point in his career to explore many of the artistic concerns that define his oeuvre, such as the transformative effects of light and atmosphere.

This beautiful exhibition brings together more than 50 paintings on loan from locations around the world. Beginning with scenes of leisure activities, modern life, and cityscapes along the Seine, the presentation culminates in the ethereal works from the Impressionist painter’s famous Mornings on the Seine series.

The canvases provide an intimate look at the Seine, a subject essential to Monet’s identity as an artist. The celebrated river captivated Monet more than any other theme, inspiring a vast number of paintings and surpassing even his defining series of water lilies by more than 100 works.

“I have painted the Seine throughout my life, at every hour, at every season. I have never tired of it: for me the Seine is always new.” —Claude Monet

Past Exhibitions of Claude Monet's works in 2013

Exhibition in Shanghai, China - The Clark's International Tour

Place: Shanghai Museum, Shanghai, China Date: September 19 – December 1, 2013

Exhibition in Giverny, France 2013 - Hiramatsu, The Lily Pond. Homage to Monet

Place: Museum of Impressionisms – Giverny France

Date: July 13, 2013 – October 31, 2013

Presentation: The Lily Pond. Homage by Hiramatsu to Monet will bring together twenty or so paintings that, made using the traditional nihonga technique, unite tradition and modernity. The exhibition will also present works by Claude Monet, and a selection of Japanese prints, from Hokusai to Hiroshige.

Japanese art definitely exerted an influence on Claude Monet, as is made clear by his collection of Japanese prints, which can today be admired at Giverny.

The exhibition “Hiramatsu, The Lily Pond. Homage to Monet” will demonstrate that, in the same way that Japanese prints were a way to introduce a new philosophy of space and light for the Impressionists, the canvases by Monet were a source of inspiration to Hiramatsu Reiji. Born in Tokyo in 1941, this Japanese painter visited Paris for the first time in 1994 and discovers the huge paintings “Waterlilies” at the Orangerie. And he took the opportunity to wander in the footsteps of the French master by visiting the garden in Giverny.

Exhibition in Rouen, France 2013 - Dazzling Reflections, 100 Impressionist Masterpieces

Place: Musée des Beaux-Arts – Rouen France

Date: April 29, 2013 – September 30, 2013

Presentation: The theme of reflections on water has been central to art since the classical age. In the nineteenth century the Impressionists employed the motif of constantly changing bodies of water to represent the ephemeral and transitory nature of reality. For Monet, Pissarro, Caillebotte, Renoir and Sisley it was a means to capture an instant in time – one that vibrated in unison with a world in constant change – in which speed and light played a leading role.

With Monet, the notion of reflections provided particularly rich food for thought, from his stay in the Netherlands to the series of Poplars, from the views of Vétheuil to the Japanese bridges and the Water Lilies in the pond in Giverny.

For the generations of artists who followed, the flickering reflections on the water’s surface thus came to signify the renewal of painting. In the work of Cézanne they were informed by density, in that of Whistler poetics, and with Signac they represented full freedom from restraint. At the end of the day, the great developments in modern painting were established around the motif of water.

The exhibition expounds the modern reflection on this aesthetic theme through a hundred or so paintings by Monet, Renoir, Manet, Caillebotte, Signac, Cézanne and Van Gogh and a splendid collection of photographs (Gustave Le Gray, Charles Marville, Peter Henry Emerson, among others).

Exhibition in Chicago, IL USA 2013 - Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity

A selection of contemporary costumes will provide the physical reality for the sartorial nuances of dress and accessories that artists used to convey their modernity as well as that of their subjects. The exhibition also includes photographs, fashion plates, advertisements, and other printed materials from the period in which Claude Monet and his colleagues created some of their most innovative compositions.

Exhibition in Melbourne, Victoria Australia 2013 - Monet's Garden

Place: National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne Victoria Australia

Date: May 10 – September 8, 2013

Title: Monet's Garden

Admission: $26 adults, $10 children

Presentation: This exhibition is devoted to Claude Monet’s iconic garden at Giverny and includes more than fifty masterpieces from the Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris France, as well as paintings from leading international museums and private collections.

Renowned as the ‘father of French Impressionism’ Monet’s forging of a new artistic style was inspired by his direct experiences of nature, culminating in the ravishing depictions of his own lily and flower gardens in the rural property at Giverny, northern France, that became his lifelong obsession. Through a magnificent and sweeping series of paintings, visitors will experience every facet of Monet’s picturesque garden; the iconic Japanese footbridge and water lily ponds, but also the irises, agapanthus, wisteria, weeping willow and alleys of roses with which Monet surrounded himself and which he painted repeatedly.

Monet’s Garden traces the evolution of his garden subjects over a period of some twenty years, revealing the transition of Monet’s purely Impressionist style to the expressive pictorial idiom that he adopted in later life.

The exhibition also presents a glimpse of Monet as an intrepid traveller, via a series of brilliant painted impressions of Normandy, the valley of the Seine, Norway and London. But it was to his gardens at Giverny that Monet always returned, and his paintings acquired a grandeur and breathtaking freedom of handling as he and his gardens matured.

Exhibition in Jackson, MS USA 2013 - Old Masters to Monet: Three Centuries of French Painting from the Wadsworth Atheneum

Théodore Géricault, Eugène Delacroix, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Claude Monet are among the masters represented.

Exhibition in Kobe, Japan - The Clark's International Tour

Place: Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art, Kobe, Japan

Date: June 8 – September 1, 2013

Exhibition in New York City, NY USA 2013 - Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity at the MET

Place: Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York USA (MET)

Date: from 19 February to 27 May 2013

Presentation: This exhibition will present a revealing look at the role of fashion in the works of the Impressionists and their contemporaries. Some seventy-five major figure paintings, seen in concert with period costumes, accessories, fashion plates, photographs, and popular prints, will highlight the vital relationship between fashion and art during the pivotal years from the mid-1860s to the mid-1880s, when Paris emerged as the style capital of the world. At a time that witnessed the rise of the department store, the advent of ready-made wear, and the proliferation of fashion magazines, those at the forefront of the avant-garde—from Manet, Monet, and Renoir to Baudelaire, Mallarmé, and Zola—turned a fresh eye to contemporary dress, embracing la mode as the harbinger of le modernité. The novelty, vibrancy, and fleeting allure of the latest trends in fashion proved seductive for a generation of artists and writers who sought to give expression to the pulse of modern life in all its nuanced richness. Organized by the Metropolitan Museum, the Musée d'Orsay, and the Art Institute of Chicago.

Exhibit in Columbia SC USA 2013 - Impressionism from Monet to Matisse

Place: The Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia SC USA

Date: Jan 25, 2013 - Apr 21, 2013

Title: Impressionism from Monet to Matisse

Admission: 10 USD

Presentation: A collection of 55 works including paintings, pastels and watercolors will be on view from January 25 through April 21, 2013 at The Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia SC USA. Included are paintings by the well-known masters of French Impressionism: Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro and Alfred Sisley. The show also includes paintings by America’s most noted Impressionist painters, Mary Cassatt and John Singer Sargent. Moving beyond Impressionism, the show is rounded out with work by the more modern painters Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, and Georges Braque, among others.

Typical of the Impressionists’ approach is Claude Monet’s Village Street of 1871. The scene is humble and ordinary, but the real subject is the dramatic play of light and shadow moving across the street in broad swaths of energetic paint. A freshening wind enlivens the sky, and swiftly applied daubs of green define the foliage. Monet’s art dances between realism and abstraction as it evokes nature’s atmosphere at the same time it calls attention to the reality of paint itself on the canvas.

Exhibition in Musée d'Orsay Paris France 2012-2013 - Impressionism and Fashion

Place: Musée d'Orsay, Paris, France

Date: September 25, 2012, to January 20, 2013

Title: Impressionism and Fashion

Admission: 12 euros

Presentation: Anxious to account for contemporary life, Impressionism favoured the representation of human figures in their daily surroundings and captured the "modern" man in his routine activities, both in cities and in the countryside. Although they did not strive to render scrupulously the physiognomy, costume or habit, the Impressionists nevertheless accounted for the fashions and attitudes of their times. They achieved this through their keenness to consider the portrait as a snapshot of a person in his/her familiar settings, through their ability to renew the genre works from the double point of view of typology and topography and above all through their attention to the "daily metamorphosis of exterior things", as Baudelaire put it. With their aesthetic positions, the reality of men and women of the years between 1860 and 1880 and their clothes underwent an undisputable transfiguration.

Exhibition in Portland MA USA 2012 - The Draw of the Normandy Coast, 1860–1960

Place: Portland Museum of Art, Portland MA USA

Date: June 14, 2012 - September 3, 2012

Title: The Draw of the Normandy Coast, 1860–1960

Presentation: The northern coast of France—and Normandy in particular—proved to be an artistic crucible for French and American painters during the course of the 19th and 20th centuries. Geographically convenient to Paris, accessible by train, with dramatic cliffs and rock formations, and picturesque and active ports, Normandy was an attractive haven. Realists, Impressionists, Neo-Impressionists, Fauves, Cubists, and Surrealists all gravitated to the area, including Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Camille Pissarro, and James Abbott McNeill Whistler. This exhibition charts the coast’s significance and showcases the ways in which the landscape was rendered by a spectrum of artists. This exhibition explores the importance of the towns and villages of Honfleur and Le Havre, and such unique destinations as Étretat and features more than 40 works of European and American art, mostly paintings and works on paper, from the Portland Museum of Art’s holdings and from the private collection of Isabelle and Scott Black, and holdings from other generous lenders.

Exhibition in the Carnegie Pittsburgh PA USA 2012 - Impressionism in a New Light: From Monet to Stieglitz

Place: The Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh PA USA, Heinz Galleries

Date: May 12, 2012–August 26, 2012

Exhibition in Albertina Vienna Austria 2012 - Impressionism, Pastels Watercolors Drawings

Place: Albertina, Vienna Austria

Date: 10 February 2012 - 13 May 2012

Title: Impressionism, Pastels Watercolors Drawings

Presentation: The exhibition presents more than 200 pastels, watercolours and drawings of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists with the primary goal of demonstrating the outstanding position of their work on paper. This is the first international show dedicated exclusively to this theme. Particularly among the artists of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, drawing achieved a ranking equal to that of painting; an equality that would prove to be pioneering for modernity.

While the paintings of Monet, Degas, Renoir, Pissarro, Manet, Seurat, Signac, Cézanne and Gauguin enjoy great popularity, their at least as impressive work on paper is much less well-known. It was thanks to these artists in particular that the drawing, in addition to its mainly secondary usage as preparatory study material, also received a primary function and was able to redefine itself as a complete, independent work of art.

Exhibit in Cincinnati OH USA 2012 - Monet in Giverny: Landscapes of Reflection

Place: Cincinnati, OH USA - Cincinnati Art Museum

Date: February 4, 2012- May 13, 2012

Title: Monet in Giverny: Landscapes of Reflection

Presentation: Monet in Giverny: Landscapes of Reflection tells a chronological narrative of artistic self-discovery whereby Monet adapted the Impressionists’ frenetic naturalism—which sought a record of shifting atmospheric conditions—to an ever more meditative practice focused on painting and its effects. The exhibition opens with three Seine river scenes that demostrate Monet’s variability in giving meaning to aquatic motifs. A striking plein-air painting from the Columbus Museum of Art shows the silvery currents of the river Epte near its juncture with the Seine outside Giverny, harking back to the moving waters so often featured in Monet’s earlier Impressionist paintings. Its inverse, the cool tones of a Seine morning scene—a masterpiece from the Boston Museum of Fine Arts from Monet’s important series of ‘mornings on the Seine’—achieves a mood through the hazy atmosphere created by the doubled reflection of sky and water and Monet’s smoothened paint application.

Title: Impressionism and Post Impressionism from The High Museum of Art, Atlanta GA USA

Presentation: Impressionism and Post Impressionism from The High Museum of Art, Atlanta GA USA showcases almost 50 paintings, drawings, and prints by such renowned artists as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Mary Cassatt, and John Singer Sargent. The works in this exhibition illustrate the emergence of Impressionism in 1870s France, its evolution to Post-Impressionism, and its later influence on American artists.

The exhibition commences with works by such pre-Impressionist artists as Eugène Boudin to mark the initial transition from the traditional, academic paintings of the Paris Salon to the loose brushwork and airy landscapes that defined the Impressionist movement. Paintings by Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, and Frédéric Bazille, the founders of Impressionism, illustrate this radical departure and further convey this movement’s fascination with light filled color and broken brushwork.
