The Metropolis museum debuts a remarkable, first-of-its-kind exhibition showcasing masterpieces from Impressionist artist Claude Monet. With professionally hand-painted replicas, 3D printed works and an AR room with vibrant projection technology, visitors are invited to discover all the nuances of Monet’s style and technique.
The innovative experience opens the mind by immersing visitors in 30 distinguished paintings created throughout Monet’s life, focusing on his fascination with ever-changing light and colour as the key to understanding his works. Two of the paintings - A Stormy Sea and Jean-Pierre Hoschedé and Michel Monet on the Banks of the Epte - are lent by the National Gallery of Canada to be specially scanned and 3D printed for an incredibly vivid reproduction.
Throughout the exhibit, Monet’s unique perceptions and distinctive portrayal of light and colour are exemplified in skilful reproductions of his revered works including The Water Lilies series, The Haystacks, The Views of Venice and many more. By exploring these most representative art pieces, visitors to the exhibition can trace Monet’s fascinating journey.
