A Pri­vate Prom­e­nade

Where Paris - - Arts& Attractions -

An as­tound­ing ex­hi­bi­tion of mas­ter­pieces of Im­pres­sion­ism, Fau­vism and the ma­jor art cur­rents that marked French art up un­til the 20th cen­tury is on dis­play at the Musée Mar­mot­tan Monet. En­ti­tled Pri­vate Col­lec­tions: A Jour­ney from the Im­pres­sion­ists to the Fauves, it brings to­gether 62 paint­ings, draw­ings and sculp­tures em­a­nat­ing from pri­vate col­lec­tions, many of which have never been shown be­fore in France. No less than 19 works by Monet, Renoir, Pis­sarro, De­gas and Caille­botte in­au­gu­rate the show, which fea­tures land­scapes of Rouen, the pic­turesque sea­side towns of Varengeville-sur-Mer and Bordighera, bou­quets of chrysan­the­mums, el­e­gant por­traits of women and still lifes. High­lights of the show in­clude the mon­u­men­tal work Le Pont de l’Europe ( The Bridge of Europe) by Gus­tave Caille­botte, the artist’s last mon­u­men­tal work in pri­vate hands as well as rare works by Seu­rat, Signac, Rys­sel­berghe but also Van Gogh, rep­re­sent­ing the Neo-Im­pres­sion­ist side of the show. - P.V.
