A Private Promenade
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.
