An Exhibition of Paintings by Monet

Rain in May, San Francisco, 2019

Imagine a rainy day in San Francisco in May— What better to do than visit the de Young Museum, have lunch in the cafeteria and linger to see the blockbuster exhibition: Monet: the Late Years.

From the catalog of the exhibition:

Through 52 paintings, the exhibition will 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. Assembled from major public and private collections in Europe, the United States, and Asia, including holdings from the Kimbell Art Museum and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Monet: The Late Years will include more than twenty examples of Monet’s beloved water-lily paintings.

Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, Texas, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.

Here are some shots taken during that rainy Saturday in the closing days of the exhibition. (Click on any photo to start the slide show.)
