Monet Exhibition

Claude Monet is one of the most well known French Impressionist painters. He was particularly fond of bold patterns and colors found in Japanese Ukiyoe paintings. He even had a Japanese garden built on his own property.


There is a Monet exhibition taking place in Fukuoka. According to legend, Monet painted his famous Water Lilies for the benefit of Japanese painters. In June 2006, some of the Water Lilies collections traveled to Ohara Museum in Okayama from Giverny. This year in Fukuoka, you will be able to view some 90 pieces of his paintings including the famous Water Lilies and the Japanese Bridge. This is truly a special opportunity to see Monet’s work locally. I highly recommend it.
