VIP Docent Led Tour of the Monet Exhibition at the de Young Museum

Monet at the DeYoung, with a Gauguin chaser.

Join fellow alumni, friends, and family at the de Young Museum for a one-hour exclusive VIP docent led tour of its current, blockbuster exhibition: Monet: The Late Years. Skip the lines, and trace your way through the last 13 years of the career of the Impressionist master via about 100 paintings of his beloved Giverny gardens. Delicate waterlilies, graceful weeping willow trees, Japanese bridge, shimmering waters, and much more in some of the most popular series of his entire career. Learn about Monet's life, his battle with rapidly declining eyesight and evolution of his work through one of the most experimental—and critically renowned—periods of his long career.

Then, after getting your fill of waterlilies, you can take advantage of a complimentary ticket to another special exhibition, Gauguin: A Spiritual Journey, where you will explore the life, art and famous South Pacific visits of this important Post-Impressionist painter, sculptor and ceramicist. You will, of course, also be able to visit any of the museum's other galleries and exhibitions, as well as the Legion of Honor, with its newly opened exhibition, Early Rubens.
