Shanghai hosts China's largest Monet exhibition
'Master of Impressionism: Claude Monet'
The newly opened 'Master of Impressionism: Claude Monet' showcases 40 original artworks by world-renowned French Impressionist painter, Monet, arranging his work in chronological order including pieces from his iconic 'Water Lily' and 'Wisteria' oil painting series.
Along with Monet's distinctive works, 12 original paintings from other impressionists from the private Marmottan Monet Museum in Paris will also be on display.
The exhibition is being showcased in Shanghai's K11 Art Mall — a collection of designer boutiques and coffee shops infused with displays of art — with organisers hoping Monet's exhibit will attract between 200,000 and 300,000 people within the three-month time period of the show.
The grand exhibition is also linked to a series of events aimed at celebrating this year's 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China.
'Master of Impressionism: Claude Monet' runs until June 15 at the K11 Art Mall in Shanghai.
