Monet: The Late Years at the DeYoung Museum

Monet: The Late Years at the DeYoung MuseumMonet: The Late Years just opened last week at the deYoung. Featuring nearly fifty paintings by Claude Monet dating mainly from 1913 to 1926, the exhibit is dedicated to the final phase of the artist’s long career.

During his late years, the well-traveled Monet stayed close to home, inspired by the variety of elements making up his own garden at Giverny, a village located about forty-five miles from Paris. With its evolving scenery of flower beds, footpaths, willows, wisteria, and nymphaea, the garden became a personal laboratory for the artist’s concentrated study of natural phenomena.

The exhibition will focus on the series that Monet invented, and just as important, reinvented, in this setting. In the process, it will reconsider the conventional notion that many of the late works painted on a large scale were preparatory for the Grand Decorations, rather than finished paintings in their own right. Boldly balancing representation and abstraction, Monet’s radical late works redefined the master of Impressionism as a forebear of modernism.
