In his many paintings, Claude Monet depicted the natural world with unrivaled brilliance. The only drawback? His impressionist brushstrokes and paint smears capture the essence of his flowers but make their details almost undecipherable. With their Monet’s Garden exhibition, the curators at the New York Botanical Garden seek to make things a little clearer, using notebooks, letters, and photographs to re-create the arrangements outside the artist’s Giverny country house as closely as possible, even building a Japanese footbridge. See it now with the much-depicted water lilies in full bloom.
Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: June 5. Continues through Oct. 21, 2012
