Claude Monet's beloved gardens at his Giverny home were a source of inspiration not just to him, but to scores of other artists during his life, after his death and to the present day. Even while untended and overgrown between 1926 and their restoration in in the late 1980s, these gardens continued to cast their spell over American artists -- some of whom, like Ellsworth Kelly, first saw them on while active duty and subsequently returned to France to study art on the G.I. Bill. This special exhibition is built around twelve core Monet canvases and includes an additional 44 works by French painters, and American Impressionist, Post-World War II and Contemporary artists.
In Monet's Garden: The Lure of Giverny was cooperatively organized by its two host venues: the Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus, Ohio (October 12, 2007-January 20, 2008) and the Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris (February 12-May 11, 2008).
