A Vision of Venice Through the Eyes of Claude Monet

London | 26 February

In this episode of Masterworks, step inside Claude Monet’s Venice and experience how the water, buildings and light wowed the great master as he painted from his gondola. Monet first discovered Venice in 1908 when he was 68 years old. The two months Monet spent there are documented in letters he and his wife Alice sent to friends and family in France. They tell of the highs and lows he experienced during his short visit and how he ultimately wished he’d travelled there as a much younger man. Monet’s masterpiece ‘Le Palais Ducal’ is the highlight of our upcoming Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale (26 February | London). Click here to watch more Sotheby’s videos.
