We went to see a very special showing of ” Monet’s Water Lilies an Artists Obsession” at the Wadsworth Atheneum.
The show featured nine of the 250 paintings devoted to the water lily theme inspired by Monet’s Japanese style garden located
in Giverny, Paris. With those examples you could see Monet’s experimentation with color, form, and of course light! Each painting exuded a different feeling.
Also on view at the Museum are a wide variety of works from European (late Medieval through mid-twentieth century) and American (Historical, Hudson River School & Post Civil War era) As well as Contemporary Art. And be sure to visit the Museum’s gift shop before leaving, a nice collection of Archival prints, books, & art inspired gifts!
