Monet's "Le Grand Canal" Will Visit Venice Prior to Auction

Claude Monet, Le Grand Canal, 1908.

Prior to its special presentation in Venice, Le Grand Canal will embark on a global tour, stopping first in Taipei, where, on 27 March, it will be unveiled to the public for the first time in 25 years, since it was last exhibited at the Kimbell Art Museum in 1997.
