Featuring 50 paintings by Claude Monet during the final phase of his long career, this exhibition focuses on the series that Monet created at Giverny, his garden in a village located 45 miles northwest of Paris. With its evolving scenery of flower beds, footpaths, willows, wisteria, and nymphaea, the garden became a personal laboratory for the artist’s sustained study of natural phenomena. Boldly balancing representation and abstraction, Monet’s radical late works redefined the master of Impressionism as a forebear of modernism.
