Monet and Boston: Lasting Impression

Titled “Monet and Boston: Lasting Impression,” the exhibition will highlight the city’s and the museum’s commitment to the artist. Between April 18 and Aug. 23, guests will be able to see works from Monet’s lifetime, ranging from early paintings completed in the 1860s to his later Impressionist Grainstacks, Rouen Cathedral, and Water Lilies series.
