Royal Academy of Arts - "The Unknown Monet: Pastel and Drawings" - To June 10, 2007
A different curatorial approach to Monet's work: The exhibition explores his talent and role as a draftsman with 80 works on paper. Monet did not like to admit his talent in these techniques - pastel, black chalk and pencil - which he nevertheless used throughout his career. The exhibition shows the links between these works on paper and his paintings. www.royalacademy.or.uk

Oh, here's another one I'd love to see! Let's hope they send this exhibit on tour to the US. I saw a similar treatment of Rembrandt's works (focusing on his etchings) at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston a couple of years ago.
