Monet painted this work while living in the Paris suburb of Argenteuil between late 1871 and early 1878. His time in Argenteuil was especially productive, for it was there that he and fellow avant-garde painters formed the Impressionists. Experience the DIA’s painting together with 10 other Argenteuil paintings by Monet and fellow impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and discover the story behind the creation of Rounded Flower Bed (Corbeille de fleurs) and how it fits into the history of Monet’s work and the Impressionist movement. Tickets will be available for members on September 15 and available for general purchase on October 2. One ticket provides admission to both Monet: Framing Life and Church: A Painter's Pilgrimage. Park West Gallery and the Park West Foundation are sponsoring the new exhibition.Detroit Institute of Arts
