ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. - Dec. 8, 2017 - PRLog -- The Detroit Art Review is the first in Detroit to include a video interview in their art review of the exhibition: Monet: Framing Life at the Detroit Institute of Arts.  Dr. Jill Shaw, curator for European Art talks about changing the title of a Monet painting after a 100 years.

The Detroit Institute of Arts opened a new exhibition, Monet: Framing Life, on September 22, 2017, with the work of impressionist Claude Monet, an early key figure in the Impressionist movement that transformed French painting in the second half of the nineteenth century.

His asymmetrical arrangement of forms emphasized the two-dimensional surfaces by eliminating linear perspective and abandoning three-dimensional modeling.  Much of this work was started plein air, where Monet would set up his easel and work directly in a natural outdoor setting, then return to the studio for completion.  His vibrant brightness of color in preparing his canvas with light-colored primers, instead of dark ground under-painting, broke with traditional landscape painting.
