  • MONET – L’Experiència Immersiva: The exhibition combines state-of-the-art technologies to discover how Monet, in leading a whole generation of artists, knew how to observe and represent reality in a revolutionary way. Following the advent of photography, the challenge for artists like Monet was to paint the changing reality, the fleeting moments, understanding the art of painting as a spontaneous act.
    Large-format, high-definition projections will flood the central space of IDEAL, surprisingly telling Monet’s particular pictorial technique and the history of his most popular works. A tribute to the painter who changed the history of art.
    In the virtual reality area, visitors can stroll around the most important destinations in the painter’s life: from childhood in Le Havre, youth in Paris, stays in London, the Dutch refuge of Zaandam, family life in Argenteuil, until its final stage in Giverny.
    “Monet, the immersive experience” is a unique proposal worldwide that invites you to immerse yourself in the most extraordinary masterpieces of impressionism. Until the 29th of February from Wednesday to Monday from 11:00 to 20:00 at IDEAL Barcelona, Doctor Trueta 196-198, metro Llacuna (L4).
