The first exhibition of French painter Claude Monet on the Chinese mainland will be held in Shanghai next week.
“Master of Impressionism — Claude Monet” will feature 40 original Monet paintings, including the iconic Water Lily and Wisteria, besides 15 paintings by other Impressionist masters such as Renoir.
The exhibition is co-organized by Tix Media and K11 Art Foundation and is one of the series of events planned to mark the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and France. All the exhibits are on loan from the Paris Marmottan Monet Museum. Over 100 guards will ensure security.
