impressionist painting of Vétheuil in Summer

Continuing its series of single-picture loan exhibitions, The Frick Collection had on display for two months Claude Monet's Vétheuil in Summer from the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, hanging near the Collection's own Monet oil Vétheuil in Winter. The juxtaposition in the North Hall of these two contemporary works depicting the same site viewed from across the Seine in summer and in winter followed the highly successful run of the exhibition "Monet at Vétheuil" presented earlier this year at the University of Michigan Museum of Art and elsewhere. The Toronto picture was featured in that exhibition, but the Frick canvas was not. A leaflet concerning Monet's two views of Vétheuil was available, as was the catalogue of the larger exhibition.
