Monet Garden
by Taipei Fine Arts Museum
Location: Taipei Fine Arts Museum
Date: 5 Mar - 6 Jun 2011

Claude Monet is the founder of Impressionism and is known for creating his works outdoors. He is famous for his series of paintings depicting cathedrals, haystacks, and water lilies, among others. Entitled Monet’s Garden, the upcoming exhibition at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum (TFAM) showcases Monet’s famous paintings of scenery and flowers created in his garden in Giverny, accompanied by his other creations of landscape paintings. Works are borrowed from Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris and Scotland, promising the audience a feast of masterpieces full of colors and vivid strokes. 
Monet is praised as the most devoted artist to the ideas of Impressionism and is recognized for his profound receptiveness to atmosphere and ability to recreate it on canvas. He departed from the European traditional oil paintings by applying new styles and languages on his works and further advanced the modern art movement. TFAM will present Monet’s astonishing works of scenery, enabling the audience to revisit an important page of western art history, and allowing them to take a moment from their hectic life and enjoy an idyllic moment for a change.
