This event has ended.

The Museum of Modern Art presents an installation that will, for the first time since the Museum's reopening in 2004, feature the full group of Claude Monet's late paintings in the collection. These include a mural-sized triptych "Water Lilies, 1914–26" and a single-panel painting of the water lilies in the Japanese-style pond that Monet cultivated on his property in Giverny, France "Water Lilies, 1914–26," as well as "The Japanese Footbridge" (c. 1920–22) and "Agapanthus" (1914–26), depicting the majestic plants in the pond's vicinity. These paintings have long held a special status with the Museum's audiences and, much like MoMA's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, they provide a modern oasis in the center of midtown Manhattan. These works will be complemented by two loans of closely related paintings.
