New Monet to Matisse exhibition in London now open

February 01, 2016

A new exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in partnership with BNY Mellon, called Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse, is now open.

This major exhibition, included in the list of the "most unmissable culture of 2016" (The Guardian, 4 Jan 2016), examines the role of gardens in the paintings of Claude Monet and his contemporaries.

With Monet as the starting point, the exhibition spans the early 1860s to the 1920s, a period of tremendous social change and innovation in the arts, and includes Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Avant-Garde artists of the early twentieth century.

It brings together over 120 works, from public institutions and private collections across Europe and the USA, including 35 paintings by Monet alongside rarely seen masterpieces by Pierre Bonnard, Emil Nolde, Gustav Klimt and Wassily Kandinsky.

The exhibition opened on Saturday and runs until April 20, 2016.

If you are visiting London during the time of the exhibition, tickets are available online via this link.
