Monet en pleine lumière – Exhibition

This major exhibition is part of celebrations to mark the 140th anniversary of Claude Monet’s first visit to Monaco and the Riviera, where the great impressionist, already halfway through his long life, would discover the landscapes and light that were to be the turning point of his work and career. Around a section devoted to the paintings he produced during his stays on the Riviera, featuring twenty-one loaned pieces displayed for the first time close to the very places they were painted, the exhibition looks at the Master’s work, from his early days in Le Havre to his final paintings in Giverny, from the perspective of his constant quest to capture light. This exhibition-event entitled Monet in Full Light is curated by Monet expert Marianne Mathieu. Read our article here. Until Sunday, September 3 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco.

Looking Forward

Child CARE Monaco Vintage Rally – Annual Event

The 10th edition of Child CARE Monaco Vintage Rally will this year take place on September 10.  An adventurous day in classic cars will carry the theme CHARLESTON to pay tribute to the year of birth of the Prince: The Twenties – ‘Les années folles‘. This Rally is the very first to welcome men to accompany ladies so the mixed teams will add a little twist to the theme.

Take the opportunity to drive exceptional cars around the Riviera or drive your own – minimum 20 years old – in the company of similar treasures, nothing like it! There is also an option to be driven by a chauffeur while enjoying champagne during the day.

There are only few places left for this glamorous charity event so please contact the team by email: if you wish to get more info or take part. The Association “Child CARE Monaco” (Charity Association for the Right to Education) was founded in February 2012. Their goal is to promote and help the education of disadvantaged children in the world.
