Excellent show. Monet "Bridge" painting particular. All very good expression of growth evolution. Something new to consider. 2nd show at Belagio seen. Keep up the effort!

Nice art exhibit

I was looking for something for my mother and I to do on Thanksgiving Day and this exhibit was perfect. It is set to your own pace and there is no one pushing you through the exhibit. Photography is allowed (non-flash), which is perfectly fine as I took photographs with my cell phone and my DSLR and every picture has come out crystal clear and perfectly illuminated. The actual exhibit is small in nature and a tad bit over priced. But, I would go again if the exhibit is of a an artist or subject we enjoy.

Bellagio Fine Arts Gallery - A Bit of Culture in the Heart of Hedonism!
Feb 4, 2017
The Bellagio Fine Arts Gallery is located in the Bellagio Casino across from the main entrance to the outdoor pool, and next to the Gelato Café. If you have not had the opportunity to experience works by the Great Masters, this is your chance! At a mere $17 for admission ($15 for teachers and students) the gallery requires reservations to keep from overcrowding (Thank You!). Staff and Security are polite, but vigilant and professional...
I appreciate that I can view the art from all angles and close-up, although it is too bad that the works are under glass...Strange, perhaps the existing lighting has too much UV and they are protecting the works from further fading, or protecting the canvas and paper from curious hands? The glass inhibits close inspection of the brush work and some of the subtle variations in color, but it is a small price to pay for a one-on-one with Degas...
The gallery is the perfect size to spend a peaceful and thought-provoking hour, and I appreciate the free accompanying audio.
You will also find a few chairs and ottomans in a lounge with books on the subject/artists featured in the exhibition. A great respite if you need to rest your feet and further your understanding of the artists/subject matter or find a little inspiration.
My only wish is that the exhibits changed more frequently!

It was so interesting because of the additional information at each picture.
Appreciate your interest and presentation of the show. Could of been more expansive with more room. Also enjoyed the sculpture garden.

Recommended only for Picasso die-hards

As an art lover who has visited many of the great world museums and seen a fair share of Picasso's works (not a problem, since he was prolific), I was curious to see the Picasso exhibit at the Bellagio's excellent little art gallery. The exhibit is devoted almost exclusively to the artist's lithographs, however, which at least is interesting to the viewer to see the various "pulls" from the same plate. That said, the exhibit can easily be viewed in less than a half hour, and some might be disappointed at the absence of any famous works (the same can be said of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, which focuses on the pre-Cubist works). So if you are planning on visiting the gallery, don't expect to see any of the Blue Period or other early works - these are all from the mid to later periods.
