This display showcases Claude Monet's Allée de sapins à Varengeville, 1882, alongside two works from David Hockney's Yosemite suite, 2011.

Many consider Impressionism to be one of the most important movements in landscape art, and Claude Monet to be one of its greatest exponents. Monet's Allée de sapins à Varengeville, painted in 1882, belongs to a period in Monet's oeuvre between 1881 and 1886, when the artist made frequent visits to paint along the Normandy coast.

David Hockney is one of the most important artists of British figurative art. He has always been interested in experimenting with new media. In 2011, Hockney made images depicting the dramatic landscape of Yosemite National Park in California using an iPad, including Yosemite I.

We are enormously grateful to the generous supporters who have loaned these wonderful works on a long-term basis.⠀
