PARIS.- Co-organised by the Museo
Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, La Caja Madrid and the Musée Marmottan
Monet, the
exhibition Monet and abstraction is presented at the Musée Marmottan
Monet
through 26 September 2010. Monet’s heritage continues to prompt new
comparisons:
in recent years, his influence on the abstract painters of the second
half of
the 20th century has been extensively explored. The new exhibition at
the Musée
Marmottan Monet examines this modernist legacy, bringing together
forty-four
Impressionist and abstract works, mostly from the sister collections of
the
Musée Marmottan Monet and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Foundation.
