Monaco Gardens in Bloom

The Fédération des Groupements Français de Monaco presents the exhibition “Anthology of the Gardens of Monaco”.

The watercolor painter Tony SZABO has attached himself to all the great gardens of Monaco, the Jardin Exotique, the Rose Garden, the Japanese garden, but also the gardens of the Casino and the hanging gardens of the Rock, to capture their abundance, the light and colours. The poet Gilles Montelatici, for his part, sought to translate into short poems, in the manner of Japanese haiku, the atmosphere of these gardens, the instantaneous impressions which emerge from them. This project is also an opportunity to visit history through the evocation of the gardens of Monaco, with its streets named after flowers or plants.

Until November 5, 2022 at the Maison de France in Monaco.

On Tuesdays to Saturdays from 14::30 to 18:30. (closed on Sundays and Mondays). Free admission.

Newton, Riviera

The title of the exhibition clearly circumscribes a geography, that of the Côte-d’Azur to Bordighera, in Italy, that Helmut Newton photographed from the 1960s until his death in the early 2000s. “A Riviera” is thus a pretext to explore the work of a major photographer of the 20th century in a different way, through now famous images, like others rarely presented to the public.
At Villa Sauber until 13.11.2022. Discover more at the Nuveau Musée national de Monaco website.
