Monet and Architecture


I got "club" tickets for this on spec with the idea of taking my sister, since both "Monet" and "Architecture" are definitely her thing. But of course in the end she could not make the date and Rob took the place.
The exhibition was structured around Monet's (long) life with paintings collected together chronologically according to where he lived or visited at the time - and some showing several of identical subjects painted (in rotation apparently) at different times of day as the sun moved round - none of your Van Gogh: 3 paintings in an afternoon stuff. I found all that as interesting as the paintings themselves since I realise I did not previously know much about him. However - always wonderful to see Monet's work - a privilege.
