As every year since its inauguration in 2000, the Grimaldi Forum will be hosting a major summer exhibition. "Monet in Full Light" will run from 8 July to 3 September 2023.
Shining a light on 2023 …
This summer, the GFM is set to host a major exhibition titled "Monet in Full Light", offering a new look at the work of the grand master, from the origins of impressionnism to the beginnings of abstraction.
The Forum will exhibit some of the finest works by the illustrious painter Claude Monet on the 140th anniversary of his first visit to Monte-Carlo and the Riviera.
During his stay, the artist, then midway through his long life, discovered landscapes and a light that would become a turning point in his work and career.
Around a section devoted to the paintings created during his trips to the Riviera, through 21 exceptional works loaned and displayed for the first time ever close to the very locations where they were painted, the exhibition will offer a new insight into the master's work, from his youth in Le Havre to the final paintings of Giverny, and his quest to capture light.
The exhibition will include around one hundred paintings, almost half of them with the exceptional support of the Marmottant Monet museum. The other masterpieces are from private collections, including those of the Prince's Palace of Monaco and major international institutions such as Cleveland Museum of Art, Columbus Museum
of Art, Denver Art Museum, the Hammer Museum of Los Angeles, and many others.
Since its inauguration on 20 July 2000 by Prince Rainier III and Prince Albert II of Monaco, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco
(GFM) has hosted an exhibition every summer devoted to a major artist, a particular subject of heritage or civilsation, or any theme that expresses the renewal of creation.

The GFM collaborates with the world's leading cultural institutions, including museums, foundations and galleries, who recognise the success of these major summer exhibitions by loaning important works of art.
Thanks to the quality of its summer exhibitions, the Grimaldi Forum has established itself as an important cultural venue in its own right.
