Visitors can see 35 paintings by the great artist, most of which were brought to Boston during Monet's lifetime.
Claude Monet (1840–1926) breathed new life into the art of painting. With a bold vision and radical approach that included a vibrant palette and recognizable writing style, he offered a new way of seeing and portraying the world. Artists and collectors came to France from countries near and far - from the USA, Japan and from all over Europe - hoping to meet Monet and buy his works. His influence was enormous, and today his work is loved all over the world. Boston has been a center for the collection and appreciation of Monet's paintings since the late 19th century. In celebration of its 150th anniversary, the museum presents a unique opportunity to see one of the jewels of the collection - a collection of paintings by the great French impressionist.
