Once again, Opera Gallery is delighted to celebrate its 25th  anniversary and the Monaco Masters Show in its Monegasque exhibition space. Over the last ten years, this unmissable artistic event of the Principality’s cultural scene has become a tradition for Contemporary and Modern Art lovers. Under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, this exhibition presents high quality artworks retracing the main trends of the 20th  century, into contemporary art practice.

Modern Art takes pride of place with paintings by masters including Raoul Dufy, Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Marc Chagall, Joan Miró. These will be curated alongside the greatest masters of the Post-War period, such as Alexander Calder, Lucio Fontana, Jean Dubuffet, Hans Hartung ou Pierres Soulages. American Pop Art will also be represented with original works by Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann, with the added opportunity to discover canvases and original works on paper by Keith Haring, one of the pioneers of American Street Art. Expressionism Abstraction always has its place in the Masters Show , and this year the focus is on Georges Mathieu, Sam Francis, Kazuo Shiraga as well as Simon Hantaï’s famous pliage.

In addition, Opera Gallery is proud to showcase Manolo Valdés’ sculptural and pictorial works, and the famous cavalcades by the French artist André Brasilier; two artists who are now included in the permanent collections of many of the most prestigious international museums. Opera Gallery confirms its reputation as a discoverer of new talent, by faithfully supporting artists like Andy Denzler, Marcello Lo Giudice, David Kim Whittaker, James Austin Murray, Cho Sung-Hee and Tigran Tsitoghdzyan.

It is also with great honour and pleasure that Opera Gallery Monaco has partnered yet again with the Monegasque association Mission Enfance. Their tireless and determined action in the field of education has allowed thousands of underprivileged children, across the world, to have access to the teaching and the education they deserve. To mark our support for this noble undertaking, Opera Gallery Monaco commits to sharing a percentage of the income from this event with the association.
