9780891780953: Monet's Water Lilies: The Agapanthus Triptych

Claude Monet was undoubtedly the most important of all the Impressionist painters and his water lily paintings represent the culminating moment in his career. Monet’s famous garden at Giverny provided the inspiration for the paintings. The exhibition will bring to life the importance and beauty of this garden through a range of archival photographs, as well as an early, rarely seen film from 1915, showing Monet painting outdoors in his garden.

Monet’s Water Lilies will reunite the three panels of an exceptionally impressive water lily triptych, created by Monet between 1915 and 1926. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Saint Louis Art Museum, and the Cleveland Museum of Art each own one panel of the triptych and the exhibition will offer a rare opportunity to bring the works together. This will be the first time that this reunion has occurred for more than 30 years. With the single exception of a triptych in the Museum of Modern Art, this is the only triptych by Monet in the United States.

The exhibition will be on view in Kansas City April 9–August 7, 2011, before traveling to St. Louis. The exhibition will travel to the Cleveland Museum of Art in 2015.

Book Description Saint Louis Art Museum. 1 Cloth(s), 2011. hard. Book Condition: New. In his late years at Giverny, Claude Monet made his boldest experiments in Impressionist technique, often depicting water lilies in a swirl of colors that approaches abstraction. At nearly seven feet tall and more than 41 feet wide, the triptych Agapanthus is among the artist's grandest statements of this subject, occupying him from 1915 through 1926. Although the panels have long been separated, this exhibition catalogue depicts them reunited, offering a privileged view of one of Monet's underappreciated masterpieces. The 40 color reproductions include close-ups of the piece and depictions of related works by Monet and other painters, while the triptych is also shown in an impressive three-page pull-out. The text charts the history of Agapanthus, and offers detailed analysis of Monet's technique using magnification and x-rays to view the painting 62. Bookseller Inventory # 73242
