MONET – When a French gallery decided to think light years outside of the art box for its new exhibition, it came up with this original and divine website celebrating the legendary Monet, father of impressionism and painted water lilies.
As soon as you enter the site of Galeries Nationales, Grand Palais, Paris, you will hear the soft piano tones that instill a calm atmosphere, making you feel as if you’re strolling in Monet’s famous garden on a lazy afternoon. Choose between exploring the painter’s work or learning about his life in the site’s amazing digital experience. I explored both. It was captivating.
By the way, if you will be in Paris before January 24, 2010, be sure to visit the Grand Palais to see Monet’s art masterpieces, up close and (almost) personal.
