Abbot Hall Art Gallery in Cumbria displays Claude Monet's 'Haystacks: Snow Effect'

A masterpiece by one of the world’s most famous painters will go on show at Abbot Hall Art Gallery in Kendal, Cumbria. Claude Monet’s Haystacks: Snow Effect, is being displayed at the Gallery in Kendal from Friday 12 January until Saturday 28 April. The painting, dated 1891, is from a series of work widely regarded as among Monet’s best and is loaned from the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh. Monet, a founder of French impressionist painting and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement’s philosophy produced over 30 haystacks paintings. He worked at different times of day and season to capture the affect changing light had on their form. The arrival of the Monet painting cements Abbot Hall’s commitment to show work by iconic international artists and comes at a time of growth for the Gallery. Lakeland Arts recently
