Monet and Architecture

There's a couple of good articles here and here about the forthcoming blockbuster Monet and Architecture, which opens at the National Gallery in London next week.

View a short video about the exhibition here.

It's difficult to find a new angle on an artist so weel-kent and well-loved as fridge-magnet-tastic Monet, but this show has his meltingly abstract Rouen Cathedral series and his shimmering, fog-bound views of the Thames, as well as his achingly gorgeous Venice scenes.

if you can't wait until next week and are in London, then you can see his Thames series of the Houses of Parliament at the Tate Britain at the moment in the excellent Impressionists in London exhibition (read more about that here).
