Monet's Cities: Paris, London, Venice, and Giverny

Claude Monet, a master of color and brushstroke, has influenced generations of painters. What is the magic of Monet’s work that inspires artists as well as viewers? By capturing light effects on architecture and water in his al fresco paintings, Monet changed how we see the world. In this course, we will look at the ways Monet depicted the cities he lived in and visited during his long life: Paris, London (1870–71, 1899, 1900, and 1901) and Venice (1908). After retiring from travel, Monet painted his beloved gardens in Giverny. The course will take a close look at Monet’s paintings at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
