Monet: The Early Years is the first major US exhibition devoted to the initial phase of Claude Monet’s (French, 1840–1926) career. Through approximately sixty paintings, the exhibition demonstrates the radical invention that marked the artist’s development during his formative years of 1858 to 1872.

Guest Lecture: "Monet and the Brotherhood of the Atelier Gleyre", by Kimberly A. Jones

Frédéric Bazille, "Bazille's Studio", or "The Studio on the rue la Condamine", 1870
May 7, 2017 -
2:00pm3:00pm

In 1863, Claude Monet entered the art studio of the Swiss painter Charles Gleyre where he first met aspiring and like-minded young artists such as Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, and Frédéric Bazille. This lecture explores the important role that these relationships had on the development of Monet's early career, and how this collaborative environment ultimately led to the birth of the artistic movement now known as Impressionism.
