Monet Exhibition - Paris
Poppy Field, Claude Monet
Poppy Field - The Most Famous Monet of all?

Grand Palais, Paris
September 22nd 2010 - January 24th 2011

If you have ever bought a box of chocolates, then you will be familiar with the work of Impressionist, Claude Monet (1840-1926).

Such popularist popularity, tends to belittle an artists work in the eyes of art afficiandos. Indeed, when Monet and his fellow Impressionists first put on a major exhibition in 1874, they were ridiculed by the establishment Art Elite. And yet, today, Impressionism is, beyond doubt, the single most popular art movement in history.

Which is why the first major exhibition of Monet's works in over 30 years, is forecast to break all attendance records, as art lovers in general, and Monet "The Prince of Impressionists" groupies in particular, flock to Paris from all over the world.

Grand Palais Paris - Worth a Visit in its Own Right!

Some 160 examples of Monet's art, spanning pretty much the whole of his career, have been gathered together from the four corners of the world and will be displayed in the magnificent setting of the Grand Palais, Paris.

Whether you are a fan or not, if you have a love of art, this exhibition would seem to be a once in a lifetime opportunity to feast your eyes on the real thing... the originals of some of the most famous, the most reproduced, canvasses in the history of art.

We'll leave it to President Nicolas Sarkozy to sum it up:

"an unmistakable emblem of the international influence of French culture"
