Pastel works from Degas to Redon Paris exhibition

September 15th 2017 to April 8th 2018   Between drawing and painting, pastel works are a form of art which are less known to most audiences. They are faster to make than paintings but extremely fragile to both light and vibrations, harder to conserve, hence the reason why we see much less of them in exhibitions. Because they […]

Eugene Boudin Retrospective at Jacquemart Andre Museum

Eugene Boudin is a great artist whose creativity has often been damned with faint praise, as in the paean ‘King of the skies.’ He is not usually recognized as a major influence in the evolution of western art and the fact that he has not been the subject of a single retrospective since 1899 is […]

Désirs & volupté exhibition at Jacquemart André Museum

For lovers of art who would like a change of exhibition pace, Paris currently offers something very original—unless you have spent time in England—as well as very appealing: an exhibition of art from Victorian England. Would it be an extension of that era’s morality? The answer, provided by this exhibition of works of English artists […]

Van Gogh | Artaud, Orsay Museum, Paris

One of the most compelling art exhibitions I have ever seen is now showing in Paris at the Orsay Museum, until July 6th, “Van Gogh/Artaud, The Man Suicided by Society.” The title translates awkwardly into English, especially if you do not subscribe to the ideas that Vincent killed himself, or that he was insane, which […]

Marmottan Monet Museum, 2 r. Louis Boilly, 75016 Paris

Admirers of Impressionism will love the exposition now showing at the Marmottan Monet Museum in Paris until 18 January 2015, “Monet’s Impression, Sunrise. The biography of a painting.” It not only reveals many fascinating aspects of that iconic painting’s trajectory as one of the most recognized paintings in history, which also gave birth to the […]

“Picasso. Mania” exposition, Grand Palais, October 27th 2015 to February 29th 2016

When it comes to contemporary art, the name Picasso is most eloquent, and comes in as a reference. For another few weeks, the Grand Palais museum in Paris hosts an original collection of 100 works of the master, exposed in a comparative perspective with another 200 great works from other masters, mostly disciples. The show […]
