Sunday Style: Monet: The Late Years

Happy Sunday! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I was able to attend the press preview of the new art exhibit, Monet: The Late Years at the Kimbell Art Museum this past Thursday. It was an amazing experience to see so many of this great artist’s painting up close! To see the detail in each stroke and think about how he worked up to his death painting each canvas was just breathtaking! 

They had wonderful refreshments for us before our tour with the deputy director and curator of the exhibit, Mr. George T.M. Shackelford. The director of the museum, Mr. Eric M. Lee,  also said a few opening remarks prior to our tour. 

This exhibit is the bookend of the earlier exhibit at the museum titled Monet: The Early Years. This exhibit has art borrowed from all over the world so that there could be an amazing collection of fifty pieces of his later years work. Talk about stunning! I could definitely tell that he was going blind and had cataracts in a lot of his last pieces. You could look at the painting and see that he must have seen shadows and blur while trying to paint his pieces. 

This is an extraordinary exhibit and I would highly recommend it! It started today, June 16, and will run through September 15. Admission to the museum is free but there is a fee for the exhibit for nonmembers. 

Now it wouldn’t be a Sunday Style post without some outfit details, right? I wore this gorgeous floral dress from Navabi to the exhibit and it was a hit! So many people complimented me on this dress and even said I looked like a Monet painting with all the floral on my dress

The shoes are new this month from Jessica London and I thought the gold was a beautiful neutral to wear with this dress! I wore these shoes all through out the exhibit and they are very comfy!

Now let’s look at some highlights from the preview: 

One thing about this exhibit that is fascinating is how the size of his canvas decreases as he gets older. There are two of the three pieces of one of his works that span the length of a wall! Monet was not a big man and in his seventies would definitely not have been able to carry a canvas this size! In the last gallery you’ll see the size decrease as well as see several variations of one painting in different color schemes as well! 

Make sure you go and check out this exhibit at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth this summer! You will not regret seeing these beautiful pieces! 

Thanks for reading and following along with me!
