The Palazzo Dario

MONET, Claude (1840 - 1926)

Date: 1908

Media: oil on canvas

Size: 92.3 x 73.2 cm

Acquired: 1963; Bequest; Margaret Davies

Accession Number: NMW A 2481

Collection: The Davies Sisters Collection

Monet painted this view of the Palazzo Dario, near the mouth of the Grand Canal, in several sessions, probably during his 'troisième motif' between two and four o'clock in the afternoon. The upper storey and the left half of the façade of the Palazzo Barbaro-Wolkoff next door are trimmed by the edges of the canvas - a compositional device derived from Japanese woodcuts. A gondola marks the dividing line between the palace and its reflection. Margaret Davies purchased this work in Paris in 1913.

Is this painting currently on exhibition in Cardiff? I’m planning a visit soon and would love to see Monet’s Venice series.

This picture is in Kumamoto, Japan right now, and is inspiring the people here.
Thank you for the great opportunity.

Hi there Angela,

This painting is currently on display in Gallery 16 at National Museum Cardiff, and we have no plans to move it in the coming months.

The Palazzo Dario is such an beautiful building - I hope you enjoy your visit to see this painting, and that it will further inspire your work! We have a lot of Venetian scenes on display - my favourite is the Palazzo Camerlenghi by Sickert :)

I live in London and would like to come and see the painting of Palazzo Dario by Monet that you have in your collection. Can you tell when it will be on view! I am a textile artist inspired by this building and this work.
Many thanks

Had a lovely Mother's Day at the Museum today but this picture was not exhibited. Would you be able to tell me when it will be? Also enjoyed the restaurant food - fabulous quality and variety. Thanks

Are there any prints of this painting available for purchase besides the very small 3X5 inch one? If so, I would be interested in obtaining one.
