For the first time, the “Monet-Mitchell” exhibition stages a visual, artistic, grandiose, sensitive and poetic “dialogue” between the works of two exceptional artists, Claude Monet (1840-1926) and Joan Mitchell (1925-1992) ), who have marked not only their time but also generations of painters.
The “Monet-Mitchell” exhibition is completed by a retrospective of Joan Mitchell’s work which allows the discovery of her work by the great French and European public. “Monet-Mitchell” and the “Joan Mitchell Retrospective” show their unique perceptions of the same composite landscape, often expressed in particularly engaging formats. For the last Monet, that of the Water Lilies, it is a question of the restitution of motifs observed for a long time in front of the water lilies of Giverny; for Joan Mitchell, in the studio of La Tour, in Vétheuil, where he settled permanently in 1968 and where Monet lived from 1878 to 1881, the exploration of the transposition, through the filter of memory, of “feelings”, in which these perceptions are remained alive beyond space and time.
