What to do in Paris this Spring


Find below 6 Must-See exhibitions in Paris this Spring:


Palais Galliera, until July 15th
This exhibition, the first retrospective in Paris devoted to Belgian fashion designer Martin Margiela, traces the career, from 1989 to 2009, of a designer who not only questioned the structure of garments but also challenged the structure of the fashion system.
Using more than 130 silhouettes, videos of défilés, House archives and special installations, the Margiela / Galliera exhibition offers us an unprecedented look at one of the most influential contemporary fashion designers. 

Musée Maillol, until July 15th
The Musée Maillol presents an exhibition to the Japanese artist, Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita.
The exhibition traces the story of a unique destiny, that of an artist evolving between two cultures. From his beginnings in Japan, through his ascent and the revelation of his work, his career will lead him to the creation of this character so unique in the Parisian context of the Roaring Twenties. Fifty years after Foujita's death in 1968, the Musée Maillol is honored with the luminous and rare work of the most oriental painter of Montparnasse. 

Musée du Luxembourg, until July 1st
Celebrating the 500th anniversary of his birth, this exhibition traces the rise of Tintoretto and the decisive years of his career. It will explore how he built himself to become the most brilliant representative of the Venetian Mannerism.

Diane Vernet, who has collected artist’s jewellery (Alexander Calder, Jeff Koons, Pablo Picasso, Niki de Saint Phalle, César…) for more than thirty years, is sharing her passion for these miniature artworks that often echo the artist’s formal language. Her collection of some 230 pieces, complemented by exceptional loans from galleries, collectors and the artists’ families. 

Musée Jacquemart-André, until July 23rd
The Musée Jacquemart-André will be holding a major retrospective devoted to Mary Cassatt (1844–1926). Considered during her lifetime as the greatest American artist, Cassatt lived in France for more than sixty years. This monographic exhibition will enable visitors to rediscover the artist through fifty major works which will convey her modernist approach — that of an American woman in Paris.

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.
