The Gemeentemuseum in the Hague is working on an exhibition about the work of the French impressionist artist Claude Monet. The exhibition, which will run in 2019 to see, especially the famous paintings of his gardens at Giverny show.
The last of the major Dutch exhibitions, with works by Monet were in 1952 in the same Gemeentemuseum, and in 1986 in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
The new exhibition focuses on the years 1900-1926.
“In this period Monet retired to his estate in Giverny, and makes his most famous paintings of his own gardens”, says a spokeswoman for the museum.
“These gardens, and he increasingly abstract way, in the history of art is often wrongly explained by problems with his eyesight. The truth is that Monet at the peak of his career is still an impressive development.”
