Every year an exhibition dedicated to Claude Monet is arranged, but the one which is about to arrive in Rome on October 19th at the Complesso del Vittoriano promises to be different from the others.
On view about 60 works painted by the father of Impressionism, coming from the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris, which are a journey into his life and artistic career.
Oscar – Claude Monet is the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the Impressionism movement’s philosophy of expressing one’s perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting. The term “Impressionism” is derived from the title of his painting Impression, soleil levant, which was exhibited in 1874 in the first of the independent exhibitions mounted by Monet and his associates as an alternative to the Salon de Paris.
From Monet’s early works, the famous caricatures of the late 1850s, through the rural and urban landscapes of London, Paris, Vétheuil, Pourville, to the portraits of his children, to the canvases dedicated to flowers of his garden up to the amazing modernity of the weeping willows, of the rose boulevard or the Japanese bridge to get to the monumental Water lilies and Wisterias.
