More about the exhibition

Monet & Architecture is the first ever exhibition looking at Monet’s career through the buildings he painted: in Normandy, in Rouen, in Paris, London, and Venice. From buildings in villages and by the coast, to some of Europe’s most famous monuments, he painted the architecture of his time – modern, historic, simple, and grand.

The exhibition brings together over 75 paintings by Monet and shows how he used architecture to create his compositions, both in his most famous paintings and lesser-known works.
