LECTURE: “Monet as a Draftsman: Between Drawing and Pictorial Invention”

Potsdam, Museum Barberini, Alter Markt, Humboldtstr. 5-6, 16.01.2019
Registration deadline: Jan 16, 2019

A presentation as part of the Symposium, "Monet. Places"

The reproduction of fleeting natural impressions played a central role in the art of Claude Monet (1840-1926). Like no other Impressionist, he explored the topography and the specific lighting moods of different locations, from the metropolis of Paris to the remote Seine villages of V├ętheuil and Giverny. This symposium explores the evolution of Monet's art from the 1850s to the 1920s with a focus on the places - both at home and on the road - from which he drew inspiration for his painting.

All lectures will be in English.
