Claude Monet in Basel

Claude Monet (1840-1926), 1899, Giverny. National Gallery London. Wikipedia.

The exhibition shows works by the French painter Claude Monet (1840-1926). The show is a celebration of light and color, illustrating the artistic development of the painter from Impressionism to his famous 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. Monet experimented with changing light and color effects in the course of a day and in different seasons and he succeeded in evoking magical moods through reflections and shadows.
