Washington D.C. Gallery Gets Monet Donation

Washington, D.C. just got a notable increase to its art scene: The BBC is reporting that a Claude Monet painting kept out of public view for 86 years has been donated to the Corcoran Gallery by a reclusive heiress. A portion of the artist's Water Lilies series, worth $25 million, was left to the Gallery by Huguette Clark, who died last month aged 104.

The Corcoran has a gallery which bears the name of her father, Senator William A. Clark, who died in 1925—the same year the painting was created.

Clark bequeathed a proportion of her $400m fortune to the arts.
