The National Gallery in London this spring presents another blockbuster show: more than 70 paintings by Claude Monet in the exhibition "Monet and architecture". She will be the first French impressionist retrospective in Britain in nearly 20 years.
The National Gallery demonstrates an unconventional look at the artist's work, which is known primarily for its landscape landscapes. The emphasis on his canvases depicting various kinds of structures has not yet been made by anyone in the world.
The exhibition “Monet and Architecture” traces the entire career of one of the founders of Impressionism through his paintings of Rouen Cathedral, Saint-Lazare station in Paris, panoramas of Venice and views of the British parliament, Waterloo bridges and Charing Cross, which he wrote during his trips to London between 1899 and 1901.
