Show me the Monet... at Tate Liverpool

Five of Claude Monet's water lily masterpieces are to be displayed at Tate Liverpool in June – two of them for the first time in Britain.

The curator, Jeremy Lewison, said: "To have five major examples in an exhibition is incredibly rare. [They] mark the crowning moment of Monet's career."
