Monet and Architecture

National Gallery, 9th April to 29th July

We associate Monet’s shimmering experiments in paint with gardens, haystacks and seascapes. This exhibition, however, presents the master from the novel angle of architecture. Throughout his career Monet turned to buildings, whether as useful compositional devices, or as indicators of human presence. One section explores his approach to the picturesque, from paintings of Dutch cottages to Rouen Cathedral. A section entitled “The City and the Modern” documents his fascination with industrialising Paris, while “The Monument and the Mysterious” gathers together his late luminous paintings of London and Venice. Unmissable.

Rodin and the Art of Ancient Greece

British Museum, 26th April to 29th July

When Rodin first visited the British Museum in 1881, he was particularly impressed by the Parthenon sculptures. Until his death in 1917, he returned repeatedly to sketch these sometimes limbless or headless masterworks. This exhibition will be the first to place the Parthenon sculptures directly alongside Rodin’s works to show the extent to which they inspired his own ground-breaking art. Over 80 of Rodin’s marbles, bronzes and plasters will be on show, alongside sketches.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect's April issue: Four writers explain how our relationship with death has changed in as technological and medical advances have been made in recent years. Joanna Bourke explores how modern life is now able to live on through social media sites, Cathy Rentzenbrink explains how (referring to the case of her own brother) a “twilight zone,” in which someone is neither alive nor dead, has been created through medical advances. Michael Marmot argues that we are experiencing a change in regards to our life expectancy—over the course of a series of decades we have seen life expectancy increase, but what do recent decreases actually mean. Meanwhile, Philip Ball writes about his participation in an experiment to create a second brain from his own flesh. Elsewhere in the issues: Jane Kinninmont questions whether the Saudi Crown Price, Mohammed bin Salman, really knows what he’s doing, Daniel Howden charts how European attitudes to migrants might be changing and Jay Elwes asks: Does a Cornish mine hold the answer to questions about the UK’s green future?
