What to do in Paris this Spring

Spring is rising with new exhibitions in Paris. Find below our favorites:

Museum Maillol, from March 2nd to July 23rd, 2017

The idea for this exhibition came from reading the book 21 rue La Boétie (Grasset) by Anne Sinclair, in which the author tells the story of her grandfather, Paul Rosenberg (1881-1959), one of the great art dealers of the first half of the last century.

The career of this exceptional man, a successful businessman and knowledgeable art lover, the friend and agent of Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Léger, Marie Laurencin, to name but some of the most well-known artists, serves as the guiding theme through a much wider history than his own, one in which he was both actor and victim. In other words, an exhibition on art and civilization, with the legendary gallery of Paul Rosenberg serving as the pivot to 20th century period paintings that combines the history of art, social and political history and the history of mentalities as these unfolded in France, Europe and the United States.

A significant portion of these works are linked directly to Paul Rosenberg, having transited through his galleries in Paris or New York. Rosenberg was an emblematic witness to a crucial turning point in the history of art: the shift of the centre of artistic gravity from one side of the Atlantic to the other, due of course to the upheavals caused by the Second World War.

Louvre Museum, from February 22nd to May 22nd, 2017

Through comparisons with the works of other artists of the Golden Age - among them Gerrit Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch, Gabriel Metsu, Caspar Netscher, and Frans van Mieris — the exhibition brings to light Vermeer’s membership of a network of painters specializing in the depiction of everyday life while admiring, inspiring, and vying with each other. Although they were painting in different cities of the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands, their pictures show marked similarities of style, subject, composition and technique.

This dynamic rivalry played its part in the remarkable quality of their respective works; in this context we might be tempted to think of Vermeer as just one painter among others, but in point of fact this reciprocal contact tended to render his temperament sharper and more individual. Rather than a stylistic innovator, he emerges as an agent of metamorphosis.


Marmottan Monet Museum, from February 23rd to July 2nd, 2017

The Marmottan Monet Museum presents the first monographic exhibition Camille Pissarro in Paris for 36 years. Some seventy-five of his masterpieces, paintings and temperas, from major museums worldwide and prestigious private collections, tracing the work of Camille Pissarro, from his youth in the Danish West Indies to large series urban of Paris, Rouen and Le Havre at the end of his life. Considered by Cézanne as ” the first Impressionist ” Pissarro was one of the founders of this group.

It is also the only one to participate in their eight exhibitions. Companion and faithful friend of Monet, master of Cézanne and Gauguin, Seurat inspirer, supporter of Signac, Pissarro is a major and essential artist. Polyglot intellectual, committed and militant, listening to the younger generation, his work, powerful and evolving, offers a unique view of the research that has animated the Impressionists and Post-circles of the second half of the nineteenth century.

Rituals, a sensory journey…

The brand for body care and cosmetics – that also cares for the interior of « home, sweet home » - has invested in the Saint-Sulpice area since October 2016, just a few steps away from the Hôtel Esprit Saint Germain.

The attentive shop advisors welcome you with a fragrant tea for a sensory journey to discover their beauty rituals. Traditional, Oriental, Asian; everyone benefits from energizing, relaxing or purifying properties… well-being according to your mood.

Several beauty rituals are presented. For example, the “Ritual of Sakura”, the flagship ritual of the brand, inspired by Japan, where the products (scrub, body milk, foaming shower gels…) are enhanced by the scents of cherry blossoms, or the “Ritual of Hammam” based on eucalyptus and rosemary flavors.

The brand offers a wide range of products: candles, fragrance sticks and perfumes sachets, and the casual-chic clothes. Last but not least, a clothing line was created especially for men, as well as a unisex line such as “Dao”.
