The major exhibitions of the autumn in Paris
Published on , in Paris
There are so many high-quality events in Paris that it’s sometimes difficult to choose. To help you plan an itinerary for your stay at the Six Paris, we recommend three truly essential exhibitions.
Leonardo da Vinci at the Louvre
If we could only see one exhibition, we would choose this one. To commemorate the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, the Louvre is presenting an exhibition that is exceptional both for the quality and the quantity of the works and documents on display. The five paintings by the Italian Renaissance genius held in the Louvre’s collections, including the famous Mona Lisa, form the basis of an exploration of his creativity. Some ten years of work has been necessary to prepare this exhibition which, in addition to the world’s largest gathering of Leonardo originals, presents the latest research findings and the results of analyses carried out during recent conservation projects undertaken by the Louvre.
Toulouse-Lautrec and Hans Hartung
This extraordinary exhibition should not, however, make us forget two other important events.
The first is the reopening, following extensive renovations, of the Museum of Modern Art. To celebrate the occasion, the museum is presenting a retrospective of work by the German artist Hans Hartung, whose restless experimentation paved the way for various major 20th century art movements.
Secondly, the Grand Palais, noted for its superb exhibitions, presents a look at work by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the famous painter and illustrator of the vibrant blend of classes and cultures that came together to form late 19th century Parisian life.
Once again, the Parisian autumn exhibition schedule promises to be exciting. To enjoy it, your Hotel Six Paris team advises you to book your admission tickets as soon as possible, as these exhibitions will be extremely well attended!
