At the Scuderie del Quirinale, a Picasso exhibition has opened recently and will remain open to visitors until early next year. The theme of the exhibition revolves around Picasso’s journey in Italy in 1917. Some notable masterpieces featured in the exhibition are his wife Olga’s portrait, their son dressed as arlecchino, numerous still lifes, The Flute of Pan, and Two Women Run on the Beach. These pieces come from the world’s most famous museums, including the Moma in New York, The Tate of London, Berlin’s Berggruen Museum, Barcelona’s Fundacio Picasso, and the Guggenheim of New York.

If in need for a break from cubism that is so characteristic of Picasso, consider paying a visit to the Monet’s exhibition that is also open right now. Monet is justly known as the “Father of Impressionism”, and some of his art works coming from the Musee Marmottan in Paris are currently held in the Complesso del Vittoriano museum. There are approximately 60 of his masterpieces that were originally kept in his house in Giverney, which was his last home. A few of the notable art works on display are Portrait de Michel Monet bebe (1878), Ninfee (1916-1919), Le Rose (1925-1926), and Londres. Le Parlement. Reflets sur la Tamise (1905).

Strongly recommended to anyone interested in art, these exhibitions – so different but so similarly amazing – can provide food for thought and pleasure to eyes.
