Understanding the creative
Monet has long been considered a spontaneous artist. However, investigation of his Water Lilies triptych exposes Monet's careful consideration, planning and reworking to achieve desired results.
A gallery in the exhibition is devoted to the intersection between art and conservation science, and what it reveals about Monet's process. Visitors will make discoveries through detail images, archival photographs, x-rays and interactive experiences.
