3) Monet-The Late Years at The Kimbell
Get out of that summer heat and into the cool air of The Kimbell. Don’t put off experiencing this once in a lifetime exhibit. Trace the evolution of Monet’s practice from 1913, when he embarked on a reinvention of his painting style that led to increasingly bold and abstract works, up to his death in 1926. In addition, the exhibition will showcase many other extraordinary and unfamiliar works from the artist’s final years, several of which will be seen for the first time in the United States. Majestic panoramas will be displayed alongside late easel paintings, demonstrating Monet’s continued vitality and variety as a painter. This exhibition will redefine Monet—widely known as the greatest landscape painter of the Impressionists—as one of the most original artists of the modern age. At The Kimbell through September 15th. Don’t wait!
