Event Description

Image: Claude Monet, Waterloo Bridge, Sunlight Effect (effect de soleil), 1903, oil on canvas. Denver Art

Our next centennial Focus Exhibition, organized by the Dayton Art Institute, provides a spotlight on Impressionism in France and Claude Monet’s remarkable influence on art. Monet and Impressionism features 13 paintings, with the focal point of the exhibition being a special loan from the Denver Art Museum of Monet’s spectacular painting, Waterloo Bridge (Effect de soleil), 1903. This work demonstrates Monet’s tireless explorations of atmosphere and light. Additional loans include works by Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, Frederick Frieseke, and Henri Matisse. The exhibition also features examples of Impressionist painting from the DAI's collection, including Monet’s Waterlilies, 1903, and the rarely shown Degas pastel, After the Bath, around 1895.
