Address:No. 49 Nanhai Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei, Taiwan 100
From Nov. 14 through Feb. 16, 2014, the National Museum of History is proud to host a special exhibition on Claude Oscar Monet (1840 - 1926), the French Impressionist painter whose "Water Lilies” series are still widely known around the world today.
To help introduce art pieces from the Impressionist movement to audience members in Taiwan, the National Museum of History has partnered with the Paris-based Musee Marmottan Monet, the holder of the largest collection of Monet's works.
Fifty-five items from the French museum's 300-strong collection have been transported to Taipei for the "Monet: Landscapes of Mind” show, which comprises of five sections - Monet's Friends & Portraits, Caricatures, Monet's Voyage, Monet's Garden and The Ultimate Works.
The Taipei Botanical Garden, which is adjacent to the museum, has also spent months cultivating specific flowering plants to mimic those featured in Monet's paintings. This delightful combination of art and nature will surely prove to be a sumptuous visual feast for any visitor.
The entry ticket is priced at NT$280, but students and senior citizens over the age of 65 will need only to pay a discounted fare of NT$250. Please click here for more information.
