For example, if modern art takes your fancy...head to the Pompidou Centre. The Louvre is a veritable cornucopia of all the greats...yes, little Mona is there as well as Rembrandt, Ingres, Vemeer, Delacroix etc etc. There's also the Grand Palais, home to the trés grand Monumenta exhibition....and the Petit Palais....Paris' fine arts musée. You can also see superb exhibitions hosted in many of the smaller musées of Paris like the Canaletto-Guardi exhibition currently showing in the beautiful 19th Parisian mansion, Musée Jacquemarte-André. There's world-class photography at the Jeau de Paume and Maison Européenne de la Photographie..... it just goes on and on and what I've mentioned above is just the tip of the ice-berg really....here's a sample...hope you like it.
1. Pompidou Centre...saw the fabulous Gerard Richter's work here. I'd never seen his paintings in Australia....in fact, I'd never heard of this artist before coming to Paris. He's obviously an extraordinary talent...I loved his large squeegeed and splattered abstracts and his 'blurred' and out of focus paintings.
Ssshhhhh-don't tell anyone...but the guys are hard at it below.
