Enjoy a different perspective on the artist of Water Lilies in the first ever exhibition to explore Monet’s relationship with architecture.

While best known for his portrayal of the natural world, Monet painted architectural structures and urban scenes throughout his career. Over 70 paintings are on display including picturesque village settings and London vistas wreathed in mist. For Monet, London’s foggy weather was its redeeming feature and made the city beautiful.

Highlights include works from his time in Paris when he lived near the Gare Saint Lazare, Venice, and his paintings of Rouen cathedral which have been described as ‘the climax of Impressionism’.

Drawn together from private and public collections around the world, several paintings are on display for the first time in the UK.
