Exhibition“Monet. Garden Paintings in the Municipal Museum of The Hague will focus on the period from 1900 to 1926. For more than a quarter of a century, the secluded artist lived in his estate at Giverny, where he created famous paintings, inspired by his own garden.
Over time, these images became more abstract. Many art critics mistakenly attribute this stylistic change to poor vision. But in fact, Monet - being at the peak of his career - was still studying new artistic frontiers, which subsequently had a great influence on artists such as Rothko and Pollock.
One of the few major exhibitions of Monet in the Netherlands took place in the Municipal Museum of The Hague in 1952. “Monet. Garden Paintings ”will be the first exhibition in the history of the country dedicated to this topic. The center of the exhibition will be “Wisteria” from the museum’s own collection, an unexpected discovery that was made during its restoration, as well as three of its six “sisters”.
