The Monet-Mitchell exhibition, featuring the works of French impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926) and US abstract expressionist artist Joan Mitchell (1925-1992), will be on view in eight galleries through Foundation Louis Vuitton in Paris until February 27 with more than 60 works by the two artists.
Suzanne Pagé is the curator of the exhibition, which creates an unprecedented dialog and bond between the works, revealing the artists’ fondness for landscape and nature.
The knot begins to unravel when Monet’s Nymphéas and Mitchell’s River, the two works that make this connection between the two artists visible, come side by side.
Another knot unraveled in the exhibition is that Mitchell, who admired Monet’s use of purple, used the blue-violet tones that preferred by Monet in his work Edrita Fried and paid homage to the master in this way.
The Monet-Mitchell exhibition is on view until February 27 in collaboration with the Marmottan Monet Museum.
