What was the last exhibition you’ve visited?
Paris’ leading museums show exhibitions, some of which come from many different parts of the world and being there means a unique chance of seeing something precious. Here is a selection of highlights for the must-see exhibitions in Paris that you might like to visit by the end of January.
1. Toulouse-Lautrec: Resolutely Modern, until January 27, Grand Palais...
The Grand Palais reveals Lautrec to be more than just a witness to the culture of Montmartre in his work. The artist sought to go beyond painting frivolous moments of belle époque life. He wished to depict time, seize time, find space-time in the image and fix the present and modern life as it was at the start of the 20th century. Painting as well as correspondence, literature and new media offer visitors a complete retrospective.
2. Golden age in English painting: Gainsborough, Reynolds, Turner, until January 31, Musée du Luxembourg
This exhibition, showing a selection of masterpieces from Tate Britain, highlights a key period in the history of painting in England, from the 1760s to around 1820. It will present an overview capturing all the originality and diversity of this time. The public will rediscover the great classics of British art here, all too rarely exhibited in France.
3. El Greco, until February 10, Grand Palais
The Grand Palais offers a retrospective around Cretan artist Domenico Theotokopoulos also known as El Greco. An exhibition focusing on the founder of the Spanish School of the 16th century who completed his apprenticeship in the Byzantine traditional before perfecting his art and training in Venice, then in Rome before blossoming in Spain.
Madonna is a unique and inspiring character. The music icon, 61, is full of energy. Can you imagine, she has just shown her 25-year-old boyfriend!
And her new show is full on, don't miss it!
Queen of Pop Madonna brings her Madame X tour to the London Palladium, a more intimate venue than her usual arena sell-outs. It's based on her 14th album, of the same name, which was released last summer.
You have two weeks before she goes to Paris, and the tickets are almost sold out, so... hurry up!
