 Thursday 23 September 10:30 am -12 noon OR Tuesday 5 October 7 pm - 8:30 pm. With Chris Boïcos.

This is the greatest exhibition ever organized on the career of the chief French Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926). Major paintings from European and American museums are being shown together, often for the first time.
Our first lecture will examine the beginning of Monet’s career in Paris in the 1860’s, his move to Argenteuil after the Franco-Prussian war, the creation of the Impressionist group and its exhibitions in the 1870’s, Monet’s relationship with his colleagues, Renoir, Degas, Bazille, Morisot, Pissarro, his dealer Paul Durand-Ruel and his beloved first wife Camille Doncieux. We will also focus on Monet’s revolutionary new way of painting rapidly and outside the studio and his creation of a modern vision of landscape and of the new urban and industrial environments of the mid 19c.
