VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA – May 10, 2013: Mazda Australia has affirmed its involvement in the arts with the official opening of Monet’s Garden at the National Gallery of Victoria.

Monet’s Garden is the fifth Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition that Mazda has sponsored during its 19 year partnership with Art Exhibitions Australia, and is the largest ever collection of Monet’s work to be brought to Australia.

This exclusive exhibition features over 60 works of art from world-renowned impressionist artist Claude Monet. The vast majority of works have travelled all the way from the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris, with others being supplied from various private collections across the globe.

Monet’s Garden showcases the transformation of Monet’s style over two decades and the evolution of his celebrated garden at Giverny, including his most famous Waterlillies series.

The exhibition finishes with a semicircular filmic installation of the artist’s iconic garden in its current form on the final day of summer, giving visitors the rare opportunity to view the garden that served as a true inspiration throughout Monet’s life.

Along with Art Exhibitions Australia, Mazda’s sponsorship portfolio also includes Opera Australia, proving its determination to enrich Australia’s cultural scene and ensure that the wider public has access to the arts.

Monet’s Garden is open to the public until 8 September, 2013.
