Sakıp Sabancı Museum (SSM)’s “Monet’s Garden – Masterpieces from Musée Marmottan” exhibition from 2012 – 2013 is now available digitally. The exhibition was originally organized in collaboration with Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris, owner of the largest Monet collection in the world. Claude Monet is who gave the impressionist movement its name. The greater portion of the selection in the exhibition included works depicting flowers and nature, with a focus on the Giverny Garden.
Prepared using records from the digtialSSM archive, visitors can Access the exhibition via SMM’s website, social media accounts, and YouTube channel. “Monet’s Garden – Masterpieces from Musée Marmottan” explores Monet’s artwork in detail, as they represent a turning point in art history. Monet-whose life in art extended into the first quarter of the 20th century-is quoted as having said, “I perhaps owe having become an artist to flowers.” The exhibition provides insight into the artist’s innovative approach to art, his passion for gardening, and his family life – to which he was deeply devoted to – through a selection of his pictures of garden scenes, water lilies, and Japanese bridges – Monet’s greatest inspiration during the last years of his life.
