An early Claude Monet painting that has been on public view only once is now on display at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, N.H. Created in 1867 when Monet was 27, the painting shows Monet’s father reading a newspaper under a canopy of shade trees, near a sunlit, flowering garden. It remained in the artist’s family until 2004 and was on display just once, two years ago in Paris as part of a major retrospective exhibition of Monet’s work. Susan Strickler, director of the Currier, said this is a rare opportunity for visitors to see the work of one of the greatest French Impressionists just as he began to emerge as an innovator.
