ATLANTA - The High Museum in Atlanta is announcing a four-year collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in New York City that will bring several of Claude Monet's water lily paintings to Georgia this summer.
High Museum director Michael E. Shapiro said Tuesday the exhibition will open June 6 with four of Monet's paintings, including ''Reflections of Clouds on the Water-Lily Pond,'' ''Water Lilies,'' ''The Japanese Footbridge'' and ''Agapanthus.''
In the fall of 2011, the High will exhibit Museum of Modern Art pieces by Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol and others. Shapiro says the museums are working on developing exhibits for 2012 and 2013.
It's the second time the two museums have worked together after a series of exhibits in Atlanta from 1997 to 2000.
