Claude Monet, The Roses (1925-1926), oil on canvas, 130 × 200 cm. Paris, Musée Marmottan Monet, bequest of Michel Monet, 1966. The last masterpiece of the Master of Impressionism is one of the jewels on display in Milan in an exhibition not to be missed.

This is his latest and magical work. An extraordinary loan because it brings together some of the spearheads of the artistic production of Many. E also due to the enormous difficulty of this period in making the works travel from one country to another.

The itinerary of the exhibition is chronological. And it is a journey into the world of perhaps the most famous nineteenth-century French painter, together with his friend / colleague Pierre-August Renoir. A choice that makes us retrace the entire artistic parable of the Impressionist Master. The works on display are those that he himself considered fundamental. The most private. Not by chance jealously guarded in his home in Giverny. The village he never left after the death of his second wife Alice and son Jean in 1916. Works that he himself never wanted to sell and that tell us about the greatest emotions related to his artistic genius.

Camille on the beach (1870), oil on canvas, 30 × 15 cm. Paris, Musée Marmottan Monet, bequest of Michel Monet, 1966. Camille was the painter’s first wife, who died in her thirties.

In the halls of the Royal Palace, there is the whole world of Monet. Created with his full-bodied but very delicate brushstrokes and with that sometimes dim and sometimes blinding light which has made famous masterpieces. Stop in front of On the Trouville beach (1870), Walk to Argenteuil (1875) e Charing Cross (1899-1901). You will be charmed …
But not only. Soon after you will find yourself admiring verdant weeping willows, dreamlike avenues of roses and lonely Japanese bridges. And then again monumental water lilies, wisteria with evanescent colors. Nature portrayed in its most elusive moment.

Claude Monet: Living and painting en plein air

Claude Monet is the painter of light and colors. The painter ofoutside. The open spaces in which he grew up. And where he has always loved to paint, escaping the ateliers. In the 7 sections of the exhibition curated by Marianne Mathieu, there are works of small format, and others more relevant. We pass from the rural and urban landscapes of London, Paris, Vétheuil, Pourville to its many residences. Those of one of the most traveling artists, in France and abroad. Algeria, Bordighera, Norway, Venice …
