Moretti Fine Art will be collaborating with Dickinson, the fine art dealers, to present “A Summer in Monaco: From Impressionism to Modern Art” at the newly-opened Moretti Gallery Monaco.
The exhibition will be on view from July 17 through September 1 in Monte-Carlo, and Dickinson will showcase examples by some of the most well known names in Impressionist and Modern art.
In the former category, Gustave Caillebotte’s “Voiliers sur la Seine à Argenteuil”, executed in 1886, honours the artist’s passion for yachting. His prize-winning white sailboat, irreverently named Cul-Blanc, would be right at home along the shores of Monte Carlo.
Among other Impressionist highlights on display will be Eugène Boudin’s beach view of Trouville (1884); two oil portraits of young women by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, as well as the artist’s tender pastel portrait of his son Jean, with his nanny Gabrielle and a friend; and two quintessential views by Camille Pissarro: “Ruisseau dans la campagne”, executed in Pontoise in 1872 during one of Pissarro’s most innovative early phases, and “Le Jardin de l’hôtel de Berneval, soleil”, a sunny plein-air garden view painted toward the end of his life in 1900.
Dating from just a couple years later is Edvard Munch’s “Blonde and Dark-Haired Nudes” (1902-03); the complementary duo of models were particular favourites of the artist, featuring in several contemporary works.
Dickinson will feature other examples by the most celebrated names in Modern Art, foremost among them a long-time resident of the Côte d’Azur: Pablo Picasso. “Jeune Garçon nu à Cheval”, an iconic and extremely rare Rose Period painting executed in 1906, is one of only two studies in oil for Picasso’s unrealised group composition L’Abreuvoir (The Watering Place), and the only one remaining in private hands. Fellow Cubist Juan Gris is represented by a 1916 “Nature Morte”, painted at the height of Gris’s engagement with Synthetic and Confetti Cubism and previously owned by eminent dealer Léonce Rosenberg.
Moretti Fine Art is at 27 avenue de la Costa. Admission is free.

“Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent.” While the very talented Jim Jarmusch may not be talking about art prints, this well observed statement rather beautifully captures a point often overlooked by art collectors.

The Ballets of Monte Carlo have been heartily congratulated for their masterful interpretations of the creations of Jeroen Verbruggen and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, performed from July 19 to July 22 at Salle Garnier at the Monte-Carlo Opera.
Jean-Christophe Maillot, the company’s director-choreographer, has enriched the already acclaimed repertoire of Les Ballets by using the contributions of these young contemporary choreographers, both of whom have long-standing connections with the company.
Jeroen Verbruggen danced for ten years with Les Ballets before embarking on his own career as a choreographer whose first works were performed in Monaco (Kill Bambi in 2012).[caption id="attachment_19725" align="alignnone" width="640"] Choreography by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui .Photo: Facebook Ballets De Monte Carlo[/caption]
Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui created In Memoriam in 2004, then Mea Culpa in 2006, before completing his trilogy this year with Memento Mori. The exceptional dancers of the Monte Carlo Ballets knew so well how to make the magic of others’ imagination come to life on the stage, further enhancing the stellar worldwide reputation of the Ballets of Monte Carlo.
