Chagall, Picasso, Dubuffet and Léger to feature in Opera Gallery’s Monaco Masters 2024 exhibit

This summer, Monaco’s Opera Gallery on Avenue Henri Dunant will host a spellbinding exhibition of the greatest 20th and 21st century artists whose creativity was piqued by their time living on the French Riviera.  

The south of France and Monaco have long been popular with the art crowd for its mild climate, natural beauty and, of course, the fabled light that the region is known for.  

Many who made their names famous by wielding a paintbrush, from Pablo Picasso to Marc Chagall and Fernand Léger, have fallen under the spell of the Riviera and produced some of their most significant and best-known pieces as a result of their time spent living and working in the region.

The event will feature a diverse range of master-level artists with differing styles, mediums and subjects, but who all had one thing in common: that they lived, worked and drew inspiration from their experiences on the Côte d’Azur.  

In addition to works from the three aforementioned artists, there will also be displays from ebullient sculptress Niki Saint-Phalle, figurative painter Fernando Botero and “low-art” humanist artist Jean Dubuffet.  

The exhibition will run from 2nd July to 31st August at Opera Gallery in the Palais de la Scala on Avenue Henri Dunant.
