Cincinnati Art Museum presents Monet in Giverny. Landscapes of Reflection

The Cincinnati Art Museum presents Monet in Giverny. Landscapes of Reflection, an exhibition on view May 13, 2012.


Claude Monet, Water Lilies, ca. 1916-19, oil on canvas, 51 1/8 x 78 7/8 in. (129.9 x 200.3 cm), Private Collection

Monet’s late works depicting iconic motifs from his garden in Giverny, such as the Japanese footbridge, water lilies, and wisterias are among the most innovative of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Taking reflection in all of its meanings as the governing theme—as a literal motif as well as a metaphor for both Monet’s experimentation and our own thoughtful viewing of his painting—this exhibition will bring together twelve masterpieces to look anew at the range of Monet’s output in Giverny and to consider the importance of his garden as a continuing source of reflective inspiration.
