Parisian Flair’s first choice is an exhibition featuring one of the most famous impressionists of all time, Claude Monet. What could be more Parisian flair than this exhibition? The sublime exhibition presents more than sixty works devoted to master Claude Monet’s iconic garden at Giverny. In Melbourne wintertime, everyone was looking forward for this perfect showcase at the National Gallery of Victoria called “Monet’s Garden”: Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris”.

Throughout the collection you will experience an evolution of the master’s motifs. It’s presented in chronological order so you will live 20 years of art works. The interesting thing is the fact that during these years, we notice a fascinating transition from the impressionist techniques and style to a more personal illustrative expression. This exhibit is a must see! It’s the first time ever that some of Monet’s greatest masterpieces come to Australia. The exhibition features a wonderful sequence of his huge waterlilies paintings. The Australian museum collaborated with the Musée Marmottan in Paris (one of the Parisian Flair’s favorite museum). This Parisian museum is the home to one of the biggest collections of his artwork worldwide. The National Gallery of Victoria has organized an exhibition of more than 50 masterpieces. For the little story, the Australian museum also decided to feature photographs of the artist and his garden as well as the story of the master’s early life. The exhibition goes on with Claude Monet’s arrival in Giverny and the creation of his amazing garden that will soon become very famous and touristy. The other half of the showcase, presents the most beautiful artwork of this inspiring and beautiful garden. The Parisian Flair is just in love with flowers and especially waterlilies and the alley of roses. So romantic n’est-ce pas? The highlight is a little movie at the end called  “The Last Day at Giverny” that shows the garden from sunrise to sunset on the last day of the season this year.

Cloé Bailly is a Director & a screenwriter. I met Cloé in Los Angeles more than a year ago during a Karaoké night in Korean Town. I never saw her work until last week when she posted her film for Sonia Rykiel. I then automatically thought she had to be interviewed for The Parisian Flair!
