The reproduction of fleeting natural impressions played a central role in the art of Claude Monet (1840-1926).
Like no other Impressionist, he explored the topography and the specific lighting moods of different locations, from the metropolis of Paris to the remote Seine villages of Vétheuil and Giverny.
This lecture by Marianne Mathieu will explore the evolution of Monet's art from the 1850s to the 1920s with a focus on the places - both at home and on the road - from which he drew inspiration for his painting.
Doors open at 5:45 pm.
Marianne Mathieu is Head Curator of Collections, Exhibitions and Communication at the Musée Marmottan Monet.
