The musée Marmottan Monet unveils a new exhibition called “Cézanne and the Italian Masters”. The exhibition runs from February 27, 2020 and is extended to January 3, 2021. The occasion to discover for the first time the painter’s work put in contact with masterpieces by the greatest Italian masters from the 16th to the 19th century.
On the occasion, a wonderful selection of paintings by Cézanne – including the iconic Montagne Sainte Victoire and the unforgettable pastorals and still lives – will face a rare selection of ancient paintings by Tintoretto, Greco, Ribera, Giordano, Poussin and for the modern ones Carrà, Sironi, Soffici, Pirandello without forgetting Boccioni and Morandi.
All in all, about sixty works coming from the greatest public and private collections in the world will be displayed!

Works answering one another while providing visitors with a lovely and complete panorama of northern painting and its history. And a beautiful exhibition to discover urgently!
