Claude Monet’s masterpieces in Rome’s Complesso del Vittoriano

Imagine setting foot in a secret garden. The landscape, the trees, the tranquility of nature. Now imagine if you could step into Claude Monet’s secret garden – the father of Impressionism, wouldn’t that be something? Thanks to Arthemisia Group and Paris’s Musée Marmottan Monet, you don’t have to just imagine anymore. Till 11 February 2018, over 60 of Monet’s most beloved pieces from his Giverny household will be on display at Complesso del Vittoriano.

The exhibition presents a thousand shades of Monet’s work. Dimmed lights that take you from one painting to the other – interwined with animated projections of Monet’s most famous artworks – guide the way.

The entire artistic journey of the Impressionist master is taken into account. From his very first caricatures with which he earned his first money, to the rural and urban landscapes of his many dwellings, the whole exhibition is breathtaking.

Admire Monet’s subjects at various hours of the day with different effects in Charring Cross Bridge and Parliament Reflects on the Thames. Observe his Giverny garden take life in the iconic Water Lilies painting or his lesser known The Roses.

And take a deep breath as you stare at the striking  Locomotive, picturing Monet as he strokes the canvas with his brush.
