The Viennese art scene of the late-nineteenth and early twentieth century counted French impressionism among its chief influences. Widely regarded as the movementâ€™s formative figure, Monetâ€™s works appeared in all the major galleries of the day, including the KÃ¼nstlerhaus Wien, the Secession Building, and the legendary Galerie Miethke, earning him distinction as the most influential of the French impressionists, along with Ã‰douard Manet. For Looking at Monet, Agnes Husslein-Arco and Stephan Koja of the Belvedere Gallery in Vienna have assembled works by Monet, presenting them alongside selected paintings and photographs by Austrian artists active throughout the same period who would have been familiar with Monetâ€™s work. Among the artists whose work is included are Gustav Klimt, Emil Jakob Schindler, Oskar Kokoschka, Olga Wisinger-Florian, Heinrich KÃ¼hn, and Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel. Brilliantly colorful and filled with light, Monetâ€™s paintings captivate modern audiences. Looking at Monet shows they were equally beloved by the artistâ€™s contemporariesâ€"many of whom were great masters in their own right.
