An Unforgettable Catalogue

The fully illustrated catalogue of more than 200 pages is one of the finest the Museum has ever produced. Essays are by Dr. John House of the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, one of the world’s foremost authorities on Monet and Impressionism; Dr. Petra ten-Doesschate Chu of Seton Hall University, an expert on nineteenth-century European art; and Dr. Hardin. This catalogue is essential for lovers of Monet and great art. It is co-published by Snoeck-Ducaju & Zoon in Ghent, Belgium, and the MFA, and is available in the Museum Shop for $35.

Monet and the Museum Shop

Monet’s world comes to life in both the galleries–and the Shop. The Museum’s wonderful exhibition catalogue will be joined by other books on the artist for both adults and children. Matted reproductions of selected works in the show will provide a permanent reminder of the exhibition and some of Monet’s most stellar paintings. Coffee cups and magnets also picture images of paintings in the exhibition.

A wide range of note cards and postcards, umbrellas, and items just for children are also for sale, along with fine porcelain and the Shop’s selection of artistic jewelry. With Monet on nearly every shelf, the Shop has rarely looked more painterly and inviting.
