On. Oct. 21, the Denver Art Museum (DAM) is proud to open the most comprehensive U.S. exhibition of Monet paintings in more than two decades. Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature will feature more than 120 paintings spanning Monet’s entire career and will focus on the celebrated French Impressionist artist’s enduring relationship with nature and his response to the varied and distinct places in which he worked.
A special dated and timed exhibition ticket is required for Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature, which will be on view through Feb. 2, 2020.
Monet traveled more extensively than any other Impressionist artist in search of new motifs. His journeys to varied places—including the rugged Normandy coast, the sunny Mediterranean, London, the Netherlands and Norway—inspired artworks included in the presentation.
This exhibition will uncover Monet’s continuous dialogue with nature and its places through a thematic and chronological arrangement, from the first examples of artworks still indebted to the landscape tradition to the revolutionary compositions and series of his late years.
Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature will explore Monet’s continuous interest in capturing the quickly changing atmospheres, the reflective qualities of water and the effects of light, aspects that increasingly led him to work on multiple canvases at once. Additionally, the exhibition will examine the critical shift in Monet’s painting when he began to focus on series of the same subject, including artworks from his series of Haystacks, Poplars, Waterloo Bridge and Waterlilies.
Co-organized by the DAM and the Museum Barberini in Potsdam, Germany, Denver will be the only U.S. venue for this presentation. After debuting in Denver, the exhibition will travel to Potsdam for the second and final showing. A catalog accompanying the exhibition, including essays by renowned scholars, will be available in The Shop at the Denver Art Museum and through the online shop.
The special dated and timed ticket required for Monet includes an exhibition audio tour (with both an adult and family-friendly version) and general museum admission for the same day. Advanced ticket purchase is strongly recommended, and the best prices are available online. #MonetatDAM
