Monet – Perception of Light and Color

21 Sep 2020 - 31 Dec 2020
Monet, Perception of Light and Colour | Metropolis Museum
Claude Monet (1840-1926) is known as the Master of colour, light and shadow in the Impressionist movement. He painted the changing light and colours in the course of the day and the seasons, capturing the nuances of different landscapes. This inaugural exhibition presents professional quality oil painting replicas and digital installations.

The exhibition is composed of three themes each covering Monet’s significant art pieces. The French countryside focuses on the natural scenery of wild flowers, trees, fields, and the seascape of France. He loved the natural beauty of Normandy and he painted numerous famous paintings such as the poplar series and the haystack series. The second section is named Cityscape, it features the architecture that obsessed Monet during his travels. The exhibition highlights the ever changing colours due to changes in the light: the Rouen cathedrals, the misty views of London and the canal landscapes of Venice. The third part titled Monet’s garden features the well known waterlilies. Monet settled in Giverny in 1883, by studying the change of light and weather throughout the day, he painted and repainted the same canvases to capture the present moment.

In parallel to the exhibition, we have invited leaf artist Inkgo Lam. She examines Monet’s masterpieces from the vantage-point of a contemporary artist. Imagining and reconstructing the impressions of classical art, she strings her insights to make creative responses to Monet’s art pieces.
