From October 5, 2022 to February 27, 2023, the Louis Vuitton Foundation is staging an unprecedented encounter between Claude Monet (1840-1926) and Joan Mitchell (1925-1992) in partnership with the Marmottan-Monet Museum. Through some sixty works by the two artists, the public will be made aware of the remarkable visual and thematic correspondences proposed by the exhibition. The “Monet-Mitchell” exhibition will be complemented by a retrospective of the work of Joan Mitchell which will allow the discovery of her work by the general French and European public.
"Monet-Mitchell" and the "Joan Mitchell Retrospective" show the particular approaches of artists faced with the same composite landscape, often expressed in particularly immersive formats.
For Claude Monet, it is the restitution of motifs observed for a long time in front of the water lilies of Giverny.
Joan Mitchell, for her part, explores the transposition, through the filter of memory, of perceptions that have remained alive beyond space and time. Will or coincidence, the latter moved to Vétheuil in 1968, where Monet lived from 1878 to 1881 and where his first wife Camillle Doncieux is buried.
