150 years after the first major exhibition of Impressionist art which took place in Paris in 1874, Claude Monet arrives in Japan with two major appointments in Tokyo and Osaka. A journey through time that finds its roots around the theme of the "series", one of the characteristic aspects of Monet's art. The French artist, born in 1840 and died in 1926, made the observation of nature one of the central elements of his art. The idea of proceeding through the repetition of the same subject, of painting the changing light, atmospheric conditions, environment, certainly originated thanks to the discovery of the Japanese prints by Hokusai that Monet owned. The exhibition in Tokyo will present a major retrospective of Monet, from his earliest portraits to his latest landscapes, including major works from his most famous series such as the Haystacks and Water Lilies and London's Waterloo Bridge.
