    NBC 5 and the Kimbell Art Museum invite you experience the work of one of the most revered painters of his time in Monet: The Late Years, now through September 15 at the Kimbell Art Museum. This special exhibit is the first exhibition in more than 20 years dedicated to the final phase of Claude Monet’s career.

    Through more than 50 paintings, the exhibition traces the evolution of Monet’s practice from 1913, when he embarked on a reinvention of his painting style that led to increasingly bold and abstract works, to his death in 1926. Assembled from major public and private collections in Europe, the United States and Asia, Monet: The Late Years includes more than 20 examples of Monet’s beloved water-lily paintings.

    In addition, the exhibition showcases many other extraordinary and unfamiliar works from the artist’s final years, several of which are being seen for the first time in the United States. A surprising range of paintings-from traditional pictures to canvases more than six feet high to a monumental work measuring 14 feet wide—demonstrate Monet's continued vitality and variety as a painter.

    Monet: The Late Years is organized by the Kimbell Art Museum and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, with the exceptional collaboration of the Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris. This exhibition redefines Monet as one of the most original artists of the modern age.

    This is the first special exhibit where Texas Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients can pay a special $3 discounted admission. This new reduced ticket price is part of the Kimbell Art Museum’s ongoing mission to provide an exceptional experience for visitors from all backgrounds, ages and abilities. This special exhibit is the perfect time to take advantage of the discount for SNAP program recipients and their family members.
