Until November 20, 2011 – Fondation Pierre Gianadda

Claude Monet, at the Gianadda foundation, with a selection of 170 paintings that are shown next to the artist’s collection of Japanese prints. While the musée Marmottan in Paris lent many works, the visit to Martigny is worth the trip for the selection of works from the Swiss collections, either public (such as the Kunstmuseum in Bern) or private (such as the Buhrle foundation). Certain paintings, from private collections, have not been shown since the painter’s demise.
