Easels in Eden: Monet’s Gardening and Painting at Giverny
Sunday, October 11, 2015, 2:00–3:00 p.m.
Location: Gartner Auditorium
About The Event
Eric T. Haskell, professor of French and humanities director of the Clark Humanities Museum at Scripps College, focuses on the relationship between Claude Monet’s gardening practices and painterly techniques as he used them to create over 500 canvases in the landscape at Giverny from the 1890s until his death in 1926. Central to his concern is an examination of how Monet moved beyond representation to abstraction and thus prefigured the modernist aesthetic in the most subtle of terms.
