Monet : Late Paintings of Giverny from the Musée Marmottan

Monet At Giverny celebrates the artist's exploration of light and color. Claude Monet's fascination with nature, light and color and the inspiration he found at his beloved home outside Paris are reflected in the outstanding exhibition Monet at Giverny: Masterpieces from the Musée Marmottan, the first exhibition of the artist's work to come to Arizona. Phoenix Art Museum is the last venue for the exhibition before it returns to France.

Monet at Giverny: Masterpieces from the Musée Marmottan is a spectacular exhibition of 22 large-scale paintings from between 1903 and 1926 that represent the culmination of his life's work in the study of light, color and the fleeting, momentary aspects of nature at his home and gardens at Giverny. In Monet at Giverny, we see Monet's gardens not only through his paintings, but also through archival photographs taken during his lifetime. Included as well are brilliant color photographs taken by the landscape designer Elizabeth Murray, who has spent the last several years working at Giverny and photographing the site.

The exhibition is enhanced further by the inclusion of Phoenix Art Museum's recent gift from Mr. and Mrs. Donald Harrington, Flowering Arches, Giverny, painted in 1913. It represents one of Monet's favorite sites at Giverny, a rose arbor nestled against the edge of the lily pond.
