The wonderful paintings of the famous French painter Claude Monet are on display at the Sabancı University Sakıp Sabancı Museum since October 9 with the cooperation of Marmottan Monet Museum and main sponsorship of Sabancı Holding.

The exhibition hosts paintings with nature and flower themes and focuses on the masterpiece of Monet “Giverny Garden”, which has been the main focus of the artist's, who said “perhaps I owe my painting career to flowers”, artistic work in the last 30 years of his life.

The exhibition consists of the godfather of impressionism's output in his mature period, such as paintings of the artist's house in the Giverny Garden, later period garden landscapes, waterlillies and the famous Japanese bridge painting. The exhibition also houses autographed portraits of Monet and his wife Camille by Auguste Renoir as well as their personal belongings and photographs. The exhibition introduces Monet with his innovative, challenging approaches expanding until the first quarter of the 20th century that had a great influence on the young artists of the 40s and the 50s. There will be conferences, workshops for children, free guided tours and film screenings during the exhibition which reflects the artist's passion for gardens and his family life.

The exhibition will remain open until January 6, 2013.
