Rome: paintings by Claude Monet on display at the Complesso del Vittoriano

Last October 19, an exhibition dedicated to Claude Monet opened in Rome, whose works are on display, until February 11, 2018, in the historic and elegant Complesso del Vittoriano, curated by Arthemisia.

The exhibition includes more than sixty of his most beautiful and evocative productions from the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris and offers the public the chance to admire the splendid works of the father ofImpressionism: these are works that Monet kept jealously guarded in his last and beloved home in Giverny, famous for the pond of the famous water lilies, all of which were created by the artist in the last years of his life and which his son Michel donated to the museum.

From the very earliest works (the famous caricatures of the late 1850s) to the monumental Water Lilies and Wisteria, through the rural and urban landscapes of London, Paris, Vétheuil, Pourville and the superb and delicate nature of roses, wisteria and weeping willows, the exhibition at the Vittoriano investigates the many facets of Monet’s work, fully restoring all its enormous artistic richness.

Also on display at the exhibition are portraits of his children and the celebrated canvases dedicated to the flowers of his garden,expertly built up over the years to the point that he had to say that if he had not been a painter he would have been a gardener and that without flowers he would not have painted , up to the very modern rendering of the weeping willows, the avenue of roses or the Japanese bridge.
