About

Be amazed by rarely seen works from the master of impressionism with Monet & Architecture at the National Gallery.

Renowned for quiet and luminous natural landscapes, Claude Monet was also a skilled architectural painter. Discover how his art changed over time through a collection of more than 75 beautiful paintings of European buildings, many of which have never been exhibited in public.

The works are displayed following three themes: The Village and the Picturesque, The City and the Modern, and The Monument and the Mysterious.

Follow Monet’s artistic career as he moves from romantic urban paintings of Paris, to powerful depictions of Venice and London’s iconic architecture.

Highlights of the exhibition include one of his first cityscapes, Quai du Louvre, and the controversial Boulevard des Capucines.
