BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – It may be bitterly cold outside, but the Albright-Knox is warm and bright thanks to a colorful and inspiring exhibit. Monet and the Impressionist Revolution is a collaboration between Collection Curator Holly Hughes and Albright-Knox Director Janne Siren.
The exhibit features dozens of late 19th and early 20th century works from the Albright-Knox’s collection, along with several Monet paintings on loan from museums around the county. Monet is known for his painting outdoors and breaking away from traditional painting techniques by experimenting with bold colors, looser paint strokes, and an emphasis on light.
The museum will have the exhibit on view until March 20, and is promoting it on social media with the hashtag “Monet at AK.” There will also be a Monet themed family workshop and tour of the exhibit on Sunday, January 31st from 11 to 1.
