This month the National Gallery is staging what it describes as ‘the first purely Monet exhibition in the UK for 20 years’. It aims to shed new light on the French artist’s work by turning attention away from his famous paintings of gardens and the sea, focusing instead on his pictures of buildings, bridges and other architecture. More than 70 paintings will be displayed in the show, with examples from the early 1860s right up to 1912, including a number of the cityscapes Monet painted of Venice, London and Paris. The exhibition will run from April 9 to July 29 and early bird tickets are available for £17. To book, go here. See below for a selection of highlights from the forthcoming show.
