This is the garden (not in full bloom) that Claude Monet painted over and over again as his muse. The exhibition of late work has no resemblance to this photograph as he was unfortunately losing his eyesight.
Therefore, the late work, not often curated to be seen together, highlights the work that shows an inadvertent transition towards abstract expressionism in many of the late paintings. The echoes of the future are apparent.'
When I saw this painting, one of three on view of this same scene, it was obvious that Monet's eyesight was faltering, however, not the spirit of this garden or his memory.

This museum quality upscale gallery exhibition can be viewed until the end of the month of June at the Gagosian art gallery in Chelsea at 21st Street, New York City.
Above is one of the paintings in the Exhibition that indicates the likely transition to Modernism toward the style of a Contemporary painting that could have been made yesterday. A few of what I consider the masterpieces are shown as well in all three galleries. A breathless experience to be sure.
