About the Lecture: Monet is arguably the most important landscape painter of the now internationally acclaimed group of artists who came to be known as the French Impressionists. We know much about him, but the general tenets of his life and art are riddled with myths, many of which he himself propagated. This talk will separate fact from fiction through close examination of his biography and detailed analysis of select works from his rich and diverse oeuvre.
