He is undoubtedly one of the best known Impressionist artists, a favorite with the public for his bright canvases that take us back in time, evoking the atmosphere of an apparently harmonious and happy past. Claude Monet (1840-1926) arrives at the Royal Palace in an exhibition created in collaboration with the Parisian Musée Marmottan Monet, which lends 53 works by the great master, of which he owns the largest nucleus in the world thanks to the donation of his son Michel, which took place in 1966. Curated by the scientific director Marianne Mathieu, the exhibition is divided into seven sections that recount the phases of the great master's research in the field of light and color in a chronological path that also includes his biography. Always in search of “effects” and “motifs”, light changes that inevitably determine color variations, Monet, painting “en plein air” fixes on the canvas that particular luminous and chromatic moment that interests him. A “fleeting” moment sought after and pursued on Norman beaches, in the countryside and in the city, moving from Trouville to Argenteuil, from Paris to London. Until Giverny, where he settled in 1890, creating unforgettable masterpieces between home and garden, such as the series of water lilies and the Japanese bridge. Among flowers, pergolas and weeping willows, water movements and reflections, his already fast painting technique, made up of spots, lines and small touches, gradually melts into ever more informal brushstrokes, to give the "impression" of reality and of the subject represented, as in the paintings of the last period.
