Monet Exhibit in Frankfurt


Claude Monet “Summer.” Oil on Canvas 1874. 57 x 80 cm

“Monet and the Birth of Impressionism” is an exhibition at Frankfurt’s Staedelmuseum  not to be missed. The show has been  extended to June 28 because of huge attendance. Try to book tickets online. (The website is challenging.) It’s art as a contact sport and not for the claustrophobic.

The comprehensive exhibition follows the emergence  and evolution of Impressionism.

The “hero” is Claude Monet as Impressionism’s lead character, along with his colleagues Auguste Renoir, Édouard Manet, Berthe Morisot, Edgar Degas, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, etc. They revolutionized art in the years that followed.
