Current exhibitions; Impressionism makes a big impression
Published on , in Paris
The Impressionist movement and its offshoots are fascinating. This spring, many Parisian venues are again presenting superb art exhibitions. Check them out during your stay at the Six Paris!
A major current exhibition; the Courtauld collection
Ten watercolours by Turner, paintings by Manet, Gauguin, Seurat, Renoir, Van Gogh... these are just some of the great masters whose works you can admire at the Fondation Louis Vuitton until June 17th.
These masterpieces were brought together by Samuel Courtauld, an English industrialist and passionate art collector who specialised in the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. Today his collection is scattered between various private and public collections, so this is a rare opportunity to see them together again in the fascinating surroundings of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, in the heart of the Bois de Boulogne.
Spotlights on the Nabis and Van Gogh
The team of the Hotel Le Six also recommends two more current exhibitions that are just as exceptional.
The Nabis and the Decor at the Musée du Luxembourg focusses on an often-overlooked group of Post-Impressionist creators who offered art that was contemporary, joyful, colourful and full of life.
Meanwhile, the Atelier des Lumières digital art centre offers a fabulous immersion in Vincent van Gogh's painting, Starry Night and other magnificent works from the Dutch Post-Impressionist’s oeuvre. Set to music, the paintings are projected on the walls, floors and ceilings of this former foundry and the effect plunges you into the heart of the artist's canvas, allowing you to study the work in stunning detail.
Whether you’re on a cultural weekend or a business trip, while staying at the Six Paris, don’t miss these current exhibitions that are the talk of the capital. See unique works that arouse emotion and reflection and are beautifully staged.
