China's first large-scale exhibition of works by French artist Monet is now open in Shanghai for the next three months

The newly opened 'Master of Impressionism: Claude Monet' showcases 40 original artworks by world-renowned French Impressionist painter, Monet, arranging his work in chronological order including pieces from his iconic 'Water Lily' and 'Wisteria' oil painting series. 

Along with Monet's distinctive works, 12 original paintings from other impressionists from the private Marmottan Monet Museum in Paris will also be on display.
