Monet and Boston: Lasting Impression
The MFA brings together its unparalleled collection of Monet paintings for the first time in a generation—in honor of its 150th anniversary.
Claude Monet (1840–1926) breathed fresh life into the art of painting. With a bold vision and radical approach that included a vibrant palette and visible brushwork, he proposed a new way of seeing and depicting the world.
Artists and collectors came to France from near and far—from the US, Japan, and all over Europe—with hopes of meeting Monet and purchasing his work. His impact was far reaching and today his works are beloved around the globe.
Boston has been a center for the collecting and appreciation of Monet’s paintings since the late 19th century. In honor of its 150th anniversary, the MFA celebrates a great treasure of its collection with a once-in-a-generation chance to see all 35 of the Museum’s oil paintings by Monet.
Many of the paintings were brought to Boston during Monet’s lifetime, and, although a gallery was dedicated to a rotating display of the artist’s works in 2016, it has been 25 years since the entire collection was shown together.
To avoid crowding and to ensure a successful visit for all, advance timed-entry tickets are required for all visitors, including members and children. No ticket sales on site at the Museum.
