A Celebration of Light and Colour

To mark the twentieth anniversary of the Fondation Beyeler and will be a celebration of light and colour, illustrating the artistic development of Claude Monet (1840-1926) from Impressionism to his late work. It will feature his Mediterranean landscapes, wild Atlantic coastal scenes, different stretches of the Seine, meadows with wild flowers, haystacks, water lilies, cathedrals, and bridges shrouded in fog. In his paintings, Monet experimented with changing light and color effects in the course of a day and in different seasons. He succeeded in evoking magical moods through reflections and shadows. The exhibition will bring together sixty-three masterpieces from private collections and renowned museums.
