We’re celebrating the end of our Autumn Season with an exclusive introductory talk on one of Melbourne’s must-see exhibitions, Monet’s Garden. Held on the very last day of Autumn, this talk is a chance to be among the first to experience the popular Winter Masterpieces series at the National Gallery of Victoria.
Monet’s Garden is the first of the Winter Masterpieces and features more than sixty works devoted to Claude Monet’s iconic garden at Giverny. The exhibition includes Monet’s most well-known works, from a stunning suite of enormous waterlilies paintings to his iconic garden motifs, as well as some rarely seen late paintings.
With this illustrated talk, parents will discover the life and creative genius of Monet, exploring the evolution of his garden motif over a period of twenty years. The talk will illuminate and inspire, providing the perfect starting point from which to explore the exhibition.
