The Minnesota Marine Art Museum (MMAM) in Winona is home to two major artworks by the great Impressionist painter Claude Monet, one of the most loved European artists of the last 150 years. An innovator during his time, Monet created obsessively, leaving behind a voluminous number of masterpieces, many of which today, find their home in some of the greatest art collections in the world. But, how much do we know about the man who made them?
To reflect on the MMAM’s painting La Seine à Vétheuil, University of Minnesota – Duluth art historian and author Dr. Robyn Roslak will be at the MMAM on Wednesday, June 12, from 6 – 7pm to lead a discussion called “Monet’s Time in Vétheuil and Giverny.” Dr. Roslak will discuss Monet’s artworks and travels from Argenteuil to Vétheuil and ultimately to Giverny, where he constructed his now-famous flower gardens and water-lily pond.
