Today I visited a performance called Monet and the Blue Angel in the Kunstmuseum in The Hague. Of note was the background made of pieces of a reflecting material onto which colored light is projected.
The story is about Claude Monet’s moments of doubt and pain after his wife has died and the critics tore his work to shreds. It caused a three year long dry spell in which he produced virtually nothing.
With the help of his daughter-in-law, Blanche Monet, he rose to the challenge and stuck with his genre of impressionism, while his contemporaries (ao Kadinsky and Willem de Kooning) had moved on to abstract expressionism.
