London‘s National Gallery has announced that three of Claude Monet‘s water lily paintings will be the star attraction in its “Impressionist Decorations: The Birth of Modern Décor” exhibition.

The showcase will also feature works by Edouard Manet, displaying the artist’s Jeanne (Spring) as seen above, as well as Pissarro’s delicate faience tiles. Altogether there will be over 80 pieces of art on display from Renoir, Morisot, Degas, Cassatt, Cézanne, Manet and Caillebotte, all borrowed from major collections including the Musée d’Orsay, Paris, The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, the Dallas Museum of Art and the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, as well as some private collections.

“Impressionist Decorations: The Birth of Modern Décor” aims to explore the Impressionist’s passion for decorative arts, which is one of the lesser-known areas in this era of art. There is a stereotype that Impressionists produced bright and spontaneous pieces while painting outdoors, but this exhibition looks to highlight how many artists also worked indoors on commissions.

You can see Monet’s Water Lilies (1908) and the two other water lily paintings alongside much more at the National Gallery’s “Impressionist Decorations: The Birth of Modern Décor” exhibition from September 11, 2021, to January 9, 2022. You can find out more information about the exhibition on the National Gallery’s website. For those wanting to see it sooner, the same exhibition will also show at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris from April 13, 2021.
