Claude Monet’s Water Lily Pond on display at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts

Published: Posted on

Claude Monet’s Water Lily Pond (1900) is on display in at The Barber Institute of Fine Arts this summer! This remarkable painting can be viewed in the Blue Gallery until 10th September.

It has been positioned next to the gallery’s other Monet work The Church at Varengeville (1882) and the works compliment each other well. It is interesting to view one of Monet’s less famous, earlier works alongside the much larger icon of Impressionism. The calm pastel colours of the Varengeville scene contrast with the shadowy, broodier tones of the garden scene.

This is a unique chance to see a breathtaking, iconic painting, up close, alongside other works of Impression also on display in the blue gallery, such as those of Pierre Auguste Renoir and Edgar Degas. This gives the painting visual context and highlights its position within the Impressionist movement.

See this painting at the Barber before it is removed in two weeks time!
