The museum’s Water Lilies by Claude Monet is a popular, well-traveled work—over the years it has been to far flung cities such as Basel and New York to be part of Monet exhibitions. It is on the road again—if you are in San Francisco, you can see the important work in a new context at the de Young Museum in the exhibition Monet: The Late Years through May 27. Then it continues to the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth where it will be June 16 to September 15. It will be back home in the gallery in October.
In the meantime, you can experience the gallery of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works in a new context—hanging temporarily in the Monet’s place of pride is a Hawai‘i painting—Lionel Walden’s Hawaiian Fisherman.
