DENVER (AP) — Officials say the Denver Art Museum will be only museum in the U.S. to host a comprehensive exhibition of Claude Monet paintings.

The Denver Post reports the museum announced Tuesday that “Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature” will open in Denver in October 2019, filling more than 20,000 square feet (1,860 square meters) of gallery space with more than 100 paintings.

According to the museum, the paintings will span the French Impressionist’s career, emphasizing “the artist’s enduring relationship with nature and his response to the varied and distinct places in which he worked.”

The exhibition will include works loaned from museums in Boston, Chicago, New York and Paris.

Group tickets and event reservations will go on sale on December 17. Single ticks will be announced at a later time, officials said. The exhibition will end in February 2020 and travel to the Museum Barberini in Potsdam, Germany.
