150 years after the first exhibition in Paris that marked the birth of the Impressionist movement in 1874, from March 9th at the Altinate / San Gaetano Cultural Center in Padua, a tribute is dedicated to the man who has gone down in history as the father of the world's most beloved artistic movement: Claude Monet, with the exhibition "Monet: Masterpieces from the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris," open to the public until July 21, 2024.

Arthemisia, in collaboration with the Municipality of Padua and the Musée Marmottan Monet, presents an exciting narrative through the exhibition of over 60 masterpieces, including the Water Lilies, Irises, London Landscapes, and many more, enriched with spectacular rooms, abundant content, videos, testimonies, and magical atmospheres.

The works displayed in the exhibition are those preserved at the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris, which houses the largest and most important collection of paintings by the French artist, the result of a generous donation made by his son Michel in 1966. These are the works that Monet cherished the most, his "own" works, those he carefully preserved in his home in Giverny until his death, which he never wanted to part with. The exhibition is thus also a journey into Monet's intimate world, into his home and soul.

In Padua, masterpieces such as Portrait of Michel Monet with a Pompon Hat (1880), The Train in the Snow: The Locomotive (1875), London. The Houses of Parliament. Reflections on the Thames (1905), as well as all the large-scale works such as the ethereal Water Lilies (1917-1920) and the evanescent Wisterias (1919-1920), are on display.

The exhibition, promoted by the Municipality of Padua, is produced and organized by Arthemisia in collaboration with the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris and is curated by Sylvie Carlier, the general curator of the Musée Marmottan Monet, with the co-curation of art historian Marianne Mathieu and the assistant curator of the Musée Marmottan Monet Aurélie Gavoille.... read the rest of the article»

The exhibition is also an exceptional event as it is one of the last opportunities, at least for a few years, to see Monet's major works in Italy.

The Musée Marmottan Monet, owned by the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, hosts the world's largest collection of Claude Monet's works, with the aim of making the artist's work known and accessible to as many people as possible, particularly through temporary exhibitions.

The exhibition at the Altinate | San Gaetano Cultural Center - which presents sixty works including Monet's masterpieces, but also works by Delacroix, Boudin, Jongkind, Renoir, and Rodin, who were his masters and friends - echoes this ambition and is particularly significant as it represents the first exhibition of works from the Parisian institution in the city of Padua.

The exhibition reviews the stages of the painter's artistic research: from the beginning of his career on the Normandy coast, through his travels to Holland, Norway, and London, to his final work, the Water Lilies, paintings that the painter jealously kept in his family home in Giverny until his death. It is an opportunity to immerse oneself in Monet's lush creativity and grasp his sources of inspiration, transported into his intimate world.

The exhibition is sponsored by Generali Valore Cultura and AcegasApsAmga, with La Repubblica as the media partner, Ricola as the special partner, and Frecciarossa as the mobility partner - Official Train.
