Monaco: an open-air museum
There are more than 150 sculptures and fountains by artists to be discovered in the gardens, streets and squares of the Principality, thanks to the Rainier III Sculpture Trail.
In every neighbourhood of the Principality, sculptures by contemporary artists sit alongside older works. In Fontvieille, César’s Le poing [The Fist] (1980) challenges Bourdelle’s Grande baigneuse accroupie [Large Crouching Bather] (1906–1907). In the Rose Garden, residents and visitors will encounter Kees Verkade’s tribute to Princess Grace (1983), Woman Smoking a Cigarette by Botero (1987) or Evolution (1979) by Emma de Sigaldi, the late twentieth-century Monegasque sculptor… On Place du Casino, Anish Kapoor’s Sky Mirror has, over time, become one of the iconic symbols of Monte-Carlo.Read more
