Monet in Paris is billed as a spellbinding journey through the vibrant world of French Impressionism.
Paintings by Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas and other French Impressionists are projected at enormous scale on to the walls of the pop-up Le Grand Palais at Northshore Brisbane.
The dynamic display of light, colour, sound and fragrance brings the artists’ masterpieces to life.
(Oscar) Claude Monet was a French painter who was the initiator, leader and advocate of the Impressionist style.
His popularity soared in the second half of the 20th Century when his works travelled the world in museum exhibitions that continue to attract record-breaking crowds.
Le Grand Palais is the purpose-built home of Monet in Paris and offers a 360-degree immersion into Monet’s world where you can stroll through the square of Montmartre, where Monet once lived, and savour the distinctly Parisian delights of Le Bistro.
The immersive spaces take you from absinthe nights to dreamy wildflower field days, dappled ponds and delicate water lilies and finally to Monet’s Studio in Giverny.
Sure does! The exhibition is named after Monet due to his role in progressing the Impressionist movement which started in France in the 19th Century. It was quite a rebellious approach at the time based on the practice of painting outdoors (en plein air) and on the spot, rather than in a studio.
