Overview

This fully illustrated catalogue for Gagosian Gallery’s Claude Monet: Late Work focuses on important and previously unseen drawings from the artist’s gardens at Giverny. An extensive illustrated catalog, it includes a detailed chronology of Monet's life and exhibitions while at Giverny written by leading Monet scholar Charles Stuckey and a compendium of historical reviews compiled by Claire Durand-Ruel Snollaerts. The focus of the exhibition is the most important late subjects drawn from his gardens at Giverny-Nymphéas, Le point japonais, and L'allée de rosiers. Aggressively rendered with broad brushwork and unusual color combinations these late paintings stand in marked contrast to the more refined 1909 works, attesting to the modernity of Monet's expanded vision. These paintings are among the most treasured of the artist's long and prodigious career, several of which were never exhibited during the artist's lifetime.
