Monet in Tulsa!

My daughter and I had the privilege of visiting the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa. The museum currently is showing a focused exhibition of Claude Monet’s works inspired by the Seine River. Unfortunately we were unable to take an photos in the display area, but were able to take home memories and a brochure! According to the handout, “Monet was one of the first artists to develop the idea of painting in a series, or creating many works depicting the same subject”. He would paint along the Seine river, which was close to his home. Monet would find a place which interesting him and paint the same place in different seasons, and from different points of view.

Monet is known as an “Impressionist” painter; his works have an unfinished look, which are created by quick brush strokes, in an attempt to capture the feeling of the moment. The exhibition is on display until September 21, 2014.

I have posted copies of Morning on the Seine II and III, which were at the Philbrook Museum, and some pictures that I took in other areas of the museum.
