Past exhibition

9 April - 29 July 2018

Location: Sainsbury Wing

Credit Suisse

One exhibition featuring Monet’s paintings and nothing else? That’s a rare thing. The last time the UK hosted a Monet exhibition like this was almost 20 years ago. But 'Monet & Architecture' is not just rare, it’s never been done before.

The Guardian
"Game-changing exhibition"

Evening Standard
"I wish I could give this show more than five stars"

There’s never been a single exhibition looking at Monet’s career through the buildings he painted: in Normandy, in Rouen, in Paris, London, and Venice. From buildings in villages and by the coast, to some of Europe’s most famous monuments, Monet painted the architecture of his time – modern, historic, simple and grand.

This is a new way of looking at Monet’s work. It shows how he used architecture to create his compositions, both in his most famous paintings and lesser-known works. Book now to see more than 75 paintings by Monet, together for the very first time.
