New Exhibit: Bellagio Spotlights Claude Monet

February 29, 2012 | by —Emma Trotter | Homepage

Grainstack (Sunset) by Claude Monet

The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art consistently exhibits some of the most rare and celebrated artworks in the world. As a follow-up to last spring’s “A Sense of Place: Landscapes from Monet to Hockney” exhibit, which included pieces painted throughout four decades of Claude Monet’s life, the gallery recently debuted “Claude Monet: Impressions of Light.” On view through January 6, 2013, the show includes 20 breathtaking, nature-inspired paintings, most of which focus on Monet’s fascination with color and light. Recognizable works, such as Grainstack (Sunset) and Camille Monet and a Child in the Artist’s Garden in Argenteui, illustrate the theme of the show exactly—they practically glow. All of the paintings are on loan from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, which has one of the largest Monet collections outside of Paris. Other works by legendary Impressionist painters, such as Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Camille Pissarro and Eugène Louis Boudin, are also on view. Bellagio, 702-693-7871
