Did The Ghost Of Claude Monet Just Visit A Monet Exhibit?

It’s as if the man himself stopped by to check on his work. 

A photo shows someone who looks a lot like artist Claude Monet standing over an oversized image of the French impressionist at the Cleveland Museum of Art last week – an image that had just been put into place. 

Monet himself would be proud of this,” Jeffrey Strean, the museum’s director of architecture and design, said as he hung the image, according to

Then, Strean snapped a photo of his work — the final touch in a new exhibition on garden-themed art — and spotted the mystery Monet. 

The museum wrote on Facebook that the image is untouched

WKYC reports that some museum employees spotted a man dressed as Monet in the museum, although they don’t know who he is or where he came from. 

“What are the chances someone looks like that and happens to be at the museum the day we are finishing installation?” Caroline Guscott, the museum’s communications director, told The Plain Dealer. 

The website reports that the museum has at least one resident ghost already: that of William Milliken, who was director from 1930 to 1958. The museum also has a page on its website detailing supposedly paranormal activity in the facility over the years.

The exhibition, “Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse,” featuring 107 impressionist works — and possibly one ghost — runs through Jan. 5.
