The ‘ Monet and the Impressionists ‘ exhibition was officially opened on Friday 10 October by the Governor of NSW, Her Excellency Marie Bashir. The ground floor of the gallery set the tone for a marvelous evening with a stage setting for the performing string quartet stunningly framed by the flowers predominately in the colours of purple and pink that have always graced the gardens in Monet’s house in Giverny, France.
The exhibition is a rare chance to see some of the world’s most famous and most loved Impressionist paintings, including Monet’s Walter lilies and Haystacks.
An impressive 30 works by Claude Monet – generally regarded as the master of Impressionism – will be exhibited in the company of masterpieces by Renoir., Pissarro, Cezanne, Degas, Rodin, Sisley and others.
This breathtaking exhibition is on loan from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, home to one of the leading Impressionist collections in the world.
Please note, the Art Gallery of New South Wales is the only venue in Australia that will be showing this exhibition and is now open to the public until 26 January 2009.Share
