Claude Monet, the “Father of Impressionism,” led a life as vibrant and colourful as his iconic paintings. Born on November 14, 1840, in Paris, Monet was destined to become a trailblazer in the art world.  Monets Garten in Frankfurt is a wonderful and immersive way to experience the iconic painter’s works in a way you never could before.

Monets Garten in Frankfurt Explained

Please keep in mind before you continue reading that this is my interpretation and opinion alone.

Much like the artist himself, whose artistic journey was a rollercoaster of experimentation and innovation. The curators have dared to take you on a journey that plays on these two distinct aspects of his work.  Namely, inviting the audience to try to capture the fleeting essence of moments and explore the interplay of light and colour rather than fixating on rigid details.

The exhibition is thoughtfully sectioned into areas, each offering a unique opportunity to experience Monet’s art from a different perspective.  From ‘reliving’ a stroll over his famous Japanese footbridge to creating a digital self-portrait in Monet’s style or conducting colourful pixels on the screen its all wonderfully whimsical.  Finally, immerse yourself in the grand hall for a visceral journey through his life, ‘living’ within his artworks.

So, whilst each ticket holder is allocated a specific 15-minute time slot, there is, in fact, no capped time limit once in the exhibit.  Meaning, however long you wish to spend with the master is entire up to you!

Claude Monet passed away on December 5, 1926, leaving behind a vivid tapestry of art that continues to captivate and enchant audiences to this day. His life remains a testament to the power of creativity, resilience, and a determination to paint the world in one’s own vibrant colours.  And this exhibition, in my opinion, is well worth a visit.
