🖼 Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature at the Denver Art Museum

The Denver Art Museum once again proves its reputation as one of the world’s leading art institutions with its newest exhibit, Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature.

The Denver Art Museum once again proves its reputation as one of the world’s leading art institutions with its newest exhibit, Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature.

With more than 120 paintings, this collection is the most comprehensive U.S. exhibition of Monet’s work in more than two decades.

Monet famously traveled more than any other impressionist artist, with paintings capturing Normandy, the Mediterranean, the Netherlands, and beyond. This exhibit showcases his relationship with these varied and distinct places in which he worked.

Monet is also known for his profound relationship with nature, which is evident to visitors as they move through the works on display. Additionally, the exhibition illustrates the shift in Monet’s painting as he began to focus on series of the same subject, including haystacks, poplars, Waterloo Bridge, and waterlilies.

With such a large body of work on view, visitors may also note the increasing abandonment of any human presence in the landscapes Monet created. This progression, from his earlier works to his later works, only reinforces the theory that Monet chose to isolate himself in nature rather than partake in the social realms of society.

The exhibition begins with a map of “Monet’s Places,” marking where he sought inspiration, from Paris to his homes in Argenteuil and Giverny, his travels along the Seine, and more.

From there, the exhibition takes viewers, mostly chronologically, on the artist’s journey through six decades of experimentation with color and light until it climaxes with a room devoted to his water lily paintings from the garden at Giverny.

Monet: The Truth of Nature is on display now through February 2, 2020. Tickets are available online at DenverArtMuseum.org.
