Incoming: Monet Exhibit in Chi Art Space

By Frances Arnold, Feb 17th, 2014 | In Art

Hot on the heels of that pretty stellar ’Barbizon to Impressionism’ show at Shanghai Museum last year, K11’s chi Art Space has just announced an exhibition of works by none other than Claude Monet, on display from the beginning of March.

An icon who needs little introduction, he was the granddaddy of 19th century art movement, Impressionism – think natural light, pastoral settings and short, swift strokes of color.

Some 40 paintings by the artist will be on show, all on loan from the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris, as well as 12 others by the likes of fellow Impressionists Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Gustave Caillebotte and Eugène Boudin. All of those are on a globe-trotting tour, currently wrapping-up in Taipei before landing in Shanghai on 8 March.

In terms of what’s actually going to be on show, details are scant. Certainly, one of the Water Lilies paintings will be there, many of which were famously completed while the artist was suffering from cataracts during his later years; as well as one of the Wisteria series.

Predictably, all of this doesn’t come cheap, with tickets pitched at a pricey 100rmb a pop. ‘Master of Impressionism: Claude Monet’ opens on 8 March, and for details, check the Art Calendar right here.
