Gagosian Gallery is pleased to present a catalogue accompanying "Claude Monet: Late Work," the most significant gathering of Monet's late paintings to take place in New York in more than thirty years. The focus of this exhibition is the most important late subjects drawn from his gardens at Giverny- Nymphéas, Le point japonais, and L'allée de rosiers. Aggressively rendered with broad brushwork and unusual color combinations these late paintings stand in marked contrast to the more refined 1909 works, attesting to the modernity of Monet's expanded vision. These paintings are among the most treasured of the artist's long and prodigious career, several of which were never exhibited during the artist's lifetime.
