This weekend I finally made it to the Monet exhibit at the Saint Louis Art Museum - just in time, as it leaves this weekend and is now sold out. There were several of his water lily paintings, but the highlight was seeing the Agapanthus Triptych, which brought together three of his paintings (each normally at a different museum) to create a 50 foot long piece. This is only done every few decades. It was truly breathtaking. I hadn't been to the StL Museum in years and forgot how nice it is - and free! (other than special exhibits). We went only to the Monet exhibit. I can't wait to go back to the rest of the museum soon.
