“Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature” opens at the DAM on Oct. 20, 2019
The Denver Art Museum will be the only U.S. museum to show the most comprehensive survey of Claude Monet paintings in two decades when it opens “Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature” next year, officials announced today.
The exhibit will fill three galleries and more than 20,000 square feet of space with 100-plus paintings spanning the legendary French Impressionist’s career, with an emphasis on “the artist’s enduring relationship with nature and his response to the varied and distinct places in which he worked,” according to the DAM. That includes Monet’s increasing isolation from people and immersion in nature, which typified the latter days of his career.
Group tickets and event reservations will go on sale December 17. Single ticket prices and on-sale dates for the exhibit, which is not included in museum general admission, will be available at a later date.
The museum, which is already setting the tone for the exhibit by floating the #MonetatDAM hashtag, will run Oct. 20, 2019 through Feb. 2, 2020 and include such well-known themes (and subjects) as haystacks, poplars, Waterloo Bridge and, of course, water lilies.
Individual paintings shared on the DAM’s website include “Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge” (1899), “Boulevard des Capucines” (1873-1874), “The Parc Monceau” (1878), “Path in the Wheat Fields at Pourville (Chemin dans les blés à Pourville)” (1882) and “The Canoe on the Epte” (1890).
After Denver, the exhibition travels to the Museum Barberini in the spring of 2020.
