About the Event
“Here above all,” Claude Monet once said of Paris, “and only here, is there still a little taste.” But the fact is—and the irony is—that for much of his life Monet was actually more appreciated in America, and by Americans in France, than he was in Paris by the French. This illustrated lecture will look at the reasons for Monet’s popularity with the public and the collectors in the United States, and with the young Americans who studied painting in France.
