Clevedon Art Club are organising a trip to the National Gallery, London on Saturday June 9th
to see the exciting exhibition: “MONET AND ARCHITECTURE”
There’s never been a single exhibition looking at Monet’s career through the buildings he painted: in Normandy, in Rouen, in Paris, London and Venice. From buildings in villages and by the coast, to some of Europe’s most famous monuments, Monet painted the architecture of his time – modern, historic and grand.
This is a new way of looking at Monet’s work. With 75 paintings shown together for the first time, it shows how he used architecture to create his compositions, both in his most famous paintings and lesser known works.
Our travel to London will be in a 32-seater coach with pick-ups in Nailsea and Clevedon. Entry to the exhibition depends on our acquiring time tickets which, based on our expected arrival in London by about 12 noon, need to be obtained from 12.30pm onwards. We are advised by the National Gallery that the later we leave it the fewer time tickets are likely to be available and so we need to establish firm interest, backed by payment, as soon as possible and no later than 10th April.
The cost will be £20 for the coach (including driver’s tip) and £22 for entry to the exhibition. The coach will leave London at 4.30pm. All welcome to join the group, with no obligations to visit the exhibition.
