|The exhibition comprises Claude Monet's works from the 1890s onwards, which culminated in the water lily pictures and in 1927 in the dedication of the water lily decorations in the Paris Orangerie. These later works, in particular the water lily pictures, are copiously represented and juxtaposed with pictures of the Modern Age which originally go back to Monet's influence. In this connection pictures by Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, Barnett Newman, Ellsworth Kelly, Clyfford Still, Willem de Kooning and many others are on view. |
In total there are approximately 30 of Monet's works on show, and around 50 works by modern artists up to the immediate present including the installation by the New York artist Byron Kim, specially created for this exhibition. This show will travel to the Fondation Beyeler, Riehen in Basel.
