The ticket price is pure sticker shock, however the exhibit sparks wonder. Upon entering, viewers are greeted to written commentary against backlit images of Monet’s work. The commentary flowed like poetry. The headings alone are a highlight reel of a life well-lived.
I must say, I saw myself and my work in the descriptions of Monet and his work. I’ve been a lover of impressionist art since high school. Reading these words about Monet’s work highlighted how deeply embedded the impressionist aesthetic is in my view of the world as well as my desire to capture changing light in my photography.
