A Guide to Monet in Paris at Crown Perth

If you’re a fan of French Impressionism, you won’t want to miss the Monet in Paris exhibition at Crown Perth. This immersive exhibition, from the same team behind Van Gogh Alive!,  takes you on a journey through the vibrant world of French Impressionism, showcasing the works of some of the genre’s most famous artists, including Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

Located at Le Grand Palais, a custom-built pavilion in Crown Perth, the Monet in Paris exhibition is a 360-degree immersion into the magical world of Monet.

Step back in time to 19th century Paris and experience the curious cabarets, glittering salons, and bustling street life that inspired some of the world’s most famous artists. Inside the exhibition, you can stroll through the central Artist’s Square of Montmartre, where Monet once lived, and savour Parisian delights at Le Bistro.

Understanding Monet’s Art

Monet was a French painter who is considered one of the founders of the Impressionist movement. His art is characterised by his use of light and colour to capture the essence of a moment.

Monet’s paintings often depict landscapes, seascapes, and gardens, but he also painted portraits and still lifes. His most famous works include his Water Lilies series, which he painted in his later years, and his Haystacks and Rouen Cathedral series.

One of the key features of Monet’s art is his use of short brushstrokes and a technique known as en plein air, which means painting outdoors. This allowed him to capture the changing light and atmosphere of a scene.

Monet’s art was also influenced by Japanese prints, which were popular in France at the time. He was particularly drawn to the way the Japanese artists used colour and composition. This can be seen in his use of bright, bold colours and his emphasis on the flatness of the canvas.

Overall, Monet’s art is a celebration of the beauty of nature and the fleeting moments of life. His paintings are full of movement, light, and colour, and they capture a sense of joy and wonder that is still felt by viewers today.

At the Monet in Paris exhibition, you’ll get a glimpse into Monet’s world and see some of his most famous works up close. From the bustling streets of Montmartre to the tranquil gardens of Giverny, you’ll experience the beauty and charm of Paris through Monet’s eyes.
