A look at selected art exhibitions worldwide.

Shanghai

Master of Impressionism: Claude Monet K11 Art Foundation. Through June 15.

Forty Monets have left their Parisian showcase to go on view for the first time in China, at a space in a trendy Shanghai shopping mall. The Musee Marmottan Monet has lent about half of its Monet holdings -- including some "Nympheas" and a dozen other Impressionist paintings. The works, arranged chronologically, will attract crowds eager to mix art with a buying spree. gewara.com (in Chinese)

Florence, Italy

Pontormo and Rosso: Diverging Paths of Mannerism Palazzo Strozzi. Through July 20.

They both painted in the Cinquecento period Vasari called "the modern manner." The Mannerist artists Jacopo Carucci, also known as Pontormo (1494-1557), and Giovan Battista di Jacopo, a.k.a. Rosso Fiorentino (1494-1540), trained in the workshop of Andrea del Sarto but embraced different ideological and stylistic approaches. The show of about 80 paintings, frescoes, drawings and tapestries traces their history in parallel, chronological monographies. Above, Pontormo's "Visitation" (1528), top, and Rosso Fiorentino's "Virgin and Child Enthroned With Sts. John the Baptist, Anthony Abbot, Stephen and Jerome" (1518). palazzostrozzi.org

Nagoya, Japan

Divisionism From van Gogh and Seurat to Mondrian Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art. Through April 6.

Divisionist, or Neo-Impressionist, artists painted with tiny dots of different colors that would mix optically into a single color. The movement, initiated by Georges Seurat, influenced contemporary and later artists well beyond French borders. About 90 paintings and works on paper, spanning the years 1885 to 1915, from van Gogh, van Rysselberghe and Jan Toorop to the abstractions of Mondrian, illustrate a display that is all about color, the quintessence of painting. www-art.aac.pref.aichi.jp/eng/exhibition.html

Toronto

Bruce Nauman: Words on Paper Art Gallery of Ontario. Through May 4.

Words, assembled into what could be called truisms, have always inspired the American artist (born 1941), particularly in his neon works. His works on paper from the 1970s and 1980s -- known as word images -- explore that fascination. They are complemented by a video installation, "Good Boy Bad Boy" (1985), and a neon sculpture, "Double Poke in the Eye II" (1984). ago.net
