Seattle Art Museum Presents Monet at Étretat

The Seattle Art Museum presents Monet at Étretat (July 1–October 17, 2021), exploring the artist’s engagement with Étretat, a seaside village in Normandy, France. The exhibition takes Fishing Boats at Étretat (1885), the only work by Claude Monet in SAM’s collection, as inspiration, presenting it alongside ten other paintings by Monet from his visits to the village as well as five paintings by his contemporaries.

Organized by SAM, the exhibition is curated by Chiyo Ishikawa, SAM’s former Susan Brotman Deputy Director for Art and Curator of European Painting and Sculpture, who retired in 2019 after a 30-year career at the museum.
