The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), has announced that “Monet and Boston: Lasting Impression” has been extended through March 28.
The popular exhibition, which offers a once-in-a-generation chance to see all 35 of the Museum’s oil paintings by Claude Monet (1840–1926), has sold out its entire run to date. March tickets went on sale Feb. 16 at noon for MFA members, and February 17 at 10 a.m. for nonmembers.
Monet found extraordinary beauty in settings both mundane and majestic, and he shared that vision—that enthusiasm for the here and now—in paintings that changed the course of art. Perhaps no other artist has captured Boston’s imagination as enduringly as the beloved Impressionist master. On view together for the first time in a generation, the MFA’s 35 Monet paintings are joined by select loans from private collections and works from the MFA’s broader holdings, including 19th-century Japanese woodblock prints and European paintings that Monet admired and emulated. The exhibition charts the development of Monet’s incomparable vision and revolutionary technique, while also reflecting on Boston’s enduring commitment to the painter and his art.
