Caillebotte, Luce, Cross, Bonnard:
The new works of the collection

“Following the Hasso Plattner Foundation’s acquisition earlier this year of four additional works by Claude Monet, we were overjoyed at these new purchases. The eight new paintings will be integrated into the thematic presentation of the collection over the coming year. I am especially delighted at the inclusion of two new artists, with the still life by Pierre Bonnard and the Paris painting by Maximilien Luce. The new presentation of the collection will also involve the creation of new rooms devoted to Fauvism as well as the serial paintings of Claude Monet. The grainstacks, Houses of Parliament, and water lily paintings will be presented together.”
