Docent Talk

Monet: The Early Years
Tuesday, February 28
2:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers

Join FAMSF docent Maureen O'Brien for a lively discussion of the first major US exhibition devoted to the initial phase of Claude Monet’s (French, 1840–1926) career. Through approximately sixty paintings, the exhibition demonstrates the radical invention that marked the artist’s development during the formative years of 1858 to 1872. In this period the young painter developed his unique visual language and technique, creating striking works that manifested his interest in painting textures and the interplay of light upon surfaces.  The lecture will coincide with the Legion of Honor exhibit that runs
February 25, 2017 – May 29, 2017.
