"Monet and Camille - Potraits of Women in Impressionism"
Claude Monet, Camille with a Small Dog, 1866. Oil on canvas. Private collection.

BREMEN. GERMANY.-Kunsthalle Bremen presents “Monet and Camille”, on view through February 26, 2006. The large-scale Monet exhibition will centre on Camille – the model, lover and future wife of the Impressionist painter. “Monet and Camille – Potraits of Women in Impressionism” comprises 19 works by Claude Monet as well as another 20 large-format paintings of women by famous contemporaries such as Renoir, Manet, Corot, Whistler and Degas.

After »The Blue Rider« and »Van Gogh: The Fields«, the Kunsthalle Bremen will be offering its visitors another large event in autumn/winter 2005/06: »Monet and Camille – Portraits of Women in Impressionism«. Claude Monet (1840-1926), the best known Impressionist painter, has been honoured in many exhibitions. Only in Germany, his works have rarely been exhibited so far. This is the first exhibition to centre on the figurative early paintings of Monet. Starting from his portrait Camille (1866) which was purchased by the Kunsthalle in 1906, the exhibition will focus on a special aspect of his works: portraits of women.

The painting in Bremen gives rise to several questions which are pursued in the exhibition. First of all, it deals with Monet’s relationship with Camille who remained his favourite model until she died in 1879. The focal point of the exhibition, however, is the tradition of representative portraits of women on the threshold of Impressionism. With this in mind, exciting comparisons are drawn between Monet’s painting and the famous works of his contemporaries such as Renoir, Manet and others, but also between the paintings and the media fashion, fashion illustrations and photography. The Musée d’Orsay is supporting this exhibition with a series of outstanding paintings on loan. Large museums from all over the world such as the National Gallery in Washington, the Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the Guggenheim Museum in New York are contributing important works of Monet, Manet, Renoir and other French artists to the exhibition.

The exhibition is arranged by Dr. Dorothee Hansen, Curator of the Kunsthalle Bremen. It is under the patronage of Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres, Minister for Culture and Communication in France.
