arrangement within the gallery space. To
create a flowing effect, the paintings were
paired with accompanying text and rele-
vant photographs and journal illustrations.
Monet's own accounts were written on
the walls themselves, whereas accompa-
nying interpretive texts were mounted on
Nineteenth-century photographs, as
well as those taken by McNamara, allow
comparison of the paintings with real-life
views ofVtheuil and the Seine.
An interactive computer display, a
guestbook-signing stand and a catalogue
viewing area were placed at the end of the
exhibit. A chronology of Monet's life and
a photograph of the artist during his
VWtheuil years are now also on display.
The size of the show is deceptive,
coupling a limited number of paintings
with an extensive amount of back-
ground information. While some visi-
tors to this show may remark on the
small size of the exhibition, no one can
deny the prodigious amounts of work
that went into its creation. The
exhibitors' tenacity and determination
make "Monet at Vetheuil" unforget-

objects were that he saw before
him," said a Givemy neighbor of
Monet's who was quoted in
"Monet's Years at Giverny."
As Monet grew older and experi-
enced failing vision, he did not ven-
ture beyond his immediate sur-
roundings. This was the time when
he created his celebrated later
paintings of the Giverny gardens
and water lilies.
Eventually, his eyesight grew
worse; he underwent cataract opera-
tions and was unable to paint for a
time. When his vision was restored,
he was able to again take up his
passion of seeing something in its
natural surroundings and then recre-
ating it on his canvas once more.
But his overall health did not
improve and in 1926, Monet, a
longtime smoker, was diagnosed
with pulmonary sclerosis. His step-
daughter, Blanche, who took care of
the house and served as Monet's
companion when Alice passed
away, and his son, Michel, never
left his side.
Claude Monet died on December
5, 1926 at age 86, and at his request
had a brief and private funeral cere-
Though Monet died swiftly and
peacefully, the beauty of his numer-
ous works is eternal, recognized
and admired worldwide.
