The Greats in Denver: Monet at DAM

“Monet: The Truth of Nature” is a venerable United States exhibition featuring Monet’s paintings, something not curated equivalently for over 20 years.   The exhibit is part of the Denver Art Museum‘s latest look at this classic impressionist master.   On view now through February 2nd, there are a host of takeaways that any patron of the finest in the arts should notice.

 

Dedicate Quality Time – The Truth of Nature is a rarity:

This exhibition features 125 works displayed on 2 separate floors of the DAM.  Other global institutions including the  Musée d’Orsay or the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) have not had such a prominent presence by Monet of late.  Denver now does.  Expect nature vs other subjects distinctly Monet.

Private works rarely on display:

The Truth of Nature does present works from global museums and the collections of private institutions and collectors.  To co-ordinate this feat is indeed special.  From legendary collectors to Princeton, Harvard and schools throughout the midwest, the trip to the DAM is worth the admission.

A Lifetime Journey:

Monet’s evolution as an artist is classically displayed through each salon at the museum.  Whether you are an ardent student of his works or just experiencing his works for the first time, the care to tell his story visually should be duly noted.  BRAVO DAM!

Tickets in Advance:

Denver’s fine art scene has a lot to offer.   While the Clyfford has upped the game for Denver as a fine art destination, Denverites have traditionally found the institutional offerings like Monet at the DAM as truly appropriate for their fine art pallet.  As noted online elsewhere, “many dates and times are already sold out.”   Be sure to buy tickets as soon as possible.  The Denver Art Museum website offers various options for tickets.  Tickets are $27 each including audio, youth 6 to 18 are $5; and as always at the DAM kids 5 and under are free.

 

Special thanks to those over at DenverILove.
