Exhibition at Les Galeries nationales du Grand Palais, Paris (September 22nd 2010 - January 24th 2011)
An exhibition of great wealth tracing back the artistic development of one of the most illustrious fathers of impressionism: Claude Monet.
Monet, the most celebrated representative of the Impressionist movement, painted for more than sixty years: landscapes (On the Bank of the Seine, Étretat, Belle-Île...), figures, still lifes (Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe). These masterpieces, rarely loaned by the Orsay Museum, form a unique ensemble within the exhibition, alongside other paintings from major foreign collections. In 1890, Monet acquired his now famous property at Giverny. His art moved on, especially with the large format Water Lilies series. He invented his own personal path, reconciling a deep attachment to nature with evocations of his own poetic universe.
