Preparing for Water Lilies

Workers install the signage at the Museum of Modern Art for the upcoming Water Lilies exhibition by Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926) who devoted the last twenty-five years of his life to the portrayal of the Japanese-style lily pond on his property in northern France.

This forthcoming exhibition of important paintings by Monet were created from 1914-1926 and it will feature the entire set of Water Lily paintings together with other related paintings loaned to MoMA from various museums around the world.

The lilies are on the road again! I've seen them many times in Paris, and can't get enough.

I need to go to Paris! I'm looking forward to seeing them though I plan on going to a special showing when the crowds will not be messing up my view.
