Monet spent his final 26 years transfixed on one subject: water lilies. For the first time in The Netherlands, the Kunstmuseum Den Haag presents an exhibition on one of Monet's most important series, Water Lillies. The gallery's own Wisteria will hang alongside its three other sibling masterpieces.
This exhibition seeks to reassess his oeuvre, arguing that right up to his dying days, the artist was evolving his style. His abstractions in Water Lillies were an artistic choice, and not one made by deteriorating eyesight as so many have claimed.
Claude Monet (1840-1926), Water lilies, 1916-1919, oil on canvas, 150 x 197 cm, Musée Marmottan.
Step into a living work of art! The Kunstmuseum is the Hague's leading art gallery, packed with works by internationally renowned artists and featuring the largest Mondrian collection in the world. But the biggest exhibit of all is the building itself, with a striking Art Deco design that perfectly accentuates the timeless artworks within.
With over 150,000 individual works, the Kunstmuseum Den Haag is one of the biggest and most comprehensive art museums in Europe! You can barely turn around without seeing iconic pieces by Degas, Monet, Picasso, Kandinsky and other cultural heavyweights.
It's known as the international home of legendary Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, with over 300 of his paintings in their extensive collection. You'll learn how he came to define abstract art in the 20th century, and see his technique evolve alongside his legendary contemporaries.
After all that painterly prestige, you can check out other art forms in the sizeable fashion and music collections – with beautiful clothes, jewelry, rare instruments and more. A lifetime of art, packed into one stunning day!

The children's creative play area is a great way of getting pre-teens to engage with art, and leave parents at peace for some culture time of their own. The only risk is that they'll have so much fun that they might not want to leave with you when the time comes!
A big drawback were the descriptions of the items. They were not numbered and not always in the immediate vicinity of the item so that it was difficult to tell which belonged to which. Especially in the show cases with porcelain, where the items were situated on different levels but all the inscriptions were at the bottom.
And I would have appreciated a more detailed map of the entire museum for orientation (i.e. a map on the wall of the entrace hall), with more specific information about the sections.
