Monaco Pavilion in Milan presents works by Claude Gauthier
For two weeks, the Monaco Pavilion in Milan is hosting an exhibition of works by the Monegasque painter Claude Gauthier.
A private viewing was held on Saturday 5 September, attended by representatives from other national pavilions at Expo Milano, journalists, and friends and admirers of the painter. They were welcomed by H.E. Mr Robert Fillon, Monaco’s Ambassador to Italy and the Commissioner General of the Monaco Pavilion in Milan.
Claude Gauthier is best known for his colourful, naive-style compositions depicting the Principality, and in particular the Rocher, during the various festivals and traditional events which take place there.
The works to be exhibited at the Monaco Pavilion were selected in line with the Expo Milano theme: “Feeding the Planet.” The concepts of sustainable fishing, harmonious development of the relationship between humans and nature – through an interpretation of the Mayan tradition, which has influenced the artist – and human solidarity make up the essence of the messages illustrated by the artist.
