Get a Feel for Monet and the Final Phase of His Career During This Exhibit

Kimbell Art Museum and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco will present "Monet: The Late Years," the first exhibition in more than 20 years dedicated to the final phase of Monet’s career. Through approximately 60 paintings, the exhibition will trace the evolution of Monet’s practice from 1913, when he embarked on a reinvention of his painting style that led to increasingly bold and abstract works, up to his death in 1926.

"Monet: The Late Years" focuses on the period when the artist, his life marked by personal loss, deteriorating eyesight and the threat of surrounding war, remained close to home to paint the varied elements of his garden at Giverny. His worsening vision and a new ambition to paint on a large scale stimulated fundamental changes in the tonality and intensity of his palette, toward vivid color combinations and broader, more apparent application of paint.

In addition, the exhibition will showcase many other extraordinary and unfamiliar works from the artist’s final years, several of which will be seen for the first time in the United States. Majestic panoramas will be displayed alongside late easel paintings, demonstrating Monet’s continued vitality and variety as a painter. This exhibition will redefine Monet, widely known as the greatest landscape painter of the Impressionists, as one of the most original artists of the modern age.

The exhibit will be on display through September 15, 2019. We encourage you to stop by Kimbell Art Museum to check it out!
