Monet At ÉTretat

Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, WA - Jul 1 – Oct 17

by Matthew Kangas

While this SAM Impressionist exhibition is small—only 11 paintings and a few drawings and photographs—its stature is assured, thanks to former deputy director Chiyo Ishikawa coaxing loans from prestigious US museums such as the Clark Art Institute. To the museum’s sole Monet, Fishing Boats at Étretat (1885), Ishikawa adds eight other Monets done at the quaint Normandy fi shing village, as well as examples of the same scenes by Camille Corot, Gustave Courbet, Charles Daubigny and Berthe Morisot.
