In its new exhibition, the Barberini Museum in Potsdam explores places that inspired the French painter Claude Monet (1840-1926).
Until 1 June 2020, the exhibition «Monet. Places.» will be on show with 110 works by the impressionist - from his very first documented work at the age of 16 to his water lily pictures in his garden at Giverny, as the museum announced on Thursday. The show is the largest Monet exhibition ever to have taken place in Germany, said museum director Ortrud Westheider at the presentation of the show.
Among the paintings that visitors can view in the museum are series such as the Water Lily Pond in Giverny or the Waterloo Bridge, which Monet portrayed 41 times during his visits to London, according to curator Zamani. The changeable weather in London drove Monet, who was interested in the representation of color and light in his works, to despair, said Zamani. If you just look away for a moment, the view is already quite different, the painter said about the city.
