The World of Claude Monet

The World of Claude Monet

4F Boston Gallery
April 26(Saturday) - September 28(Sunday),2008
Claude Monet(1840-1926) was a leading Impressionist painter. He sought to capture on canvas the ever-changing qualities of nature (as he saw it), under different weather conditions and at different times of day. His works, generated through his sharp observation, have continued to fascinate and captivate viewers. Monet hung Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints in his house and planted Japanese flowers in his garden―his affinity for Japanese art is one of the reasons we Japanese are so attracted to Monet and his works.
