This new exhibition at the Clark Art Institute will consider the influence of impressionist master Claude Monet on contemporary American artist Ellsworth Kelly. Kelly himself selected the works in the show, which will include two of his paintings, 18 of his unpublished drawings, and nine paintings by Monet.
In 2001, Kelly wrote, “Monet’s last paintings had a great influence on me, and even though my work doesn’t look like his, I feel I want the spirit to be the same.”
Pictured is Monet’s The Path under the Rose Arches (circa 1920–22).
Monet/Kelly opens Sunday (Nov. 23) at the Clark Art Institute (225 South St., Williamstown, Mass.) and will remain on view through Feb. 15, 2015.
