'The seventeenth century. True and false of nature': the exhibition of the landscape paintings of Monet at Palladio's Basilica in Vicenza, starts from the 17th century, from the very beginning of landscape paintings. Annibale Carracci and Domenichino open a debate on the complex relationship between true and false nature, which will continue until the end of the 19th century. In this first section of the Vicenza art exhibition at the Basilica Palladiana 'Monet' one will be able to admire Poussin, Lorrain, Salvator Rosa and the innovations of Dutch paintings.

'The eighteenth century. The age of 'the view': in Vicenza - 'Verso Monet' will host one of the most important chapters of landscape painting: the view from Gaspar van Wittel to Canaletto, Bellotto and Guardi.

'Romanticism and realism': the landscape painting in the Romantic period finds its place between the paintings of the 1600s and 1700s and the Impressionists. Friedrich, Turner, Constable, Corot, Millet and Courbet joined by the experiences of the Hudson River School in America in an unprecedented comparison.

'Impressionism and the landscape': great names such as Pissarro, Sisley, Van Gogh, Degas, Renoir, Gauguin and Cézanne introduce major changes in France in landscape art in the 19th century, when the style of landscape painting developed in previous centuries began to show signs of a deep emotional component.

'Monet and new nature': the Vicenza art exhibition on landscape paintings by Monet ends with a sort of 'show within a show' highlighting the path of the French artist towards a more inward nature.
