When: Tuesday June 21, 2016 – Sunday July 3, 2016
Plenty of big names are featured in this historical exploration of the place of childhood in art. 75 masterpieces explore the status of childhood between the 14th and 20th centuries at the Musée Marmottan-Monet this spring, bringing together a distinguished roster of artists – Manet, Cézanne, Monet, Renoir, Matisse, Picasso, Dubuffet and more.
Les Hugo, Une Famille d’artistes
Where: Maison de Victor Hugo, Le Marais
When: mardi 21 juin, 2016 – mardi 30 août, 2016
An insight into the various impressive artworks of Victor Hugo’s close family and descendants. Victor Hugo wasn’t the only artist in his family – far from it. That’s the myth the marvellous Maison Victor Hugo will dispel this spring as it takes a look at all manner of works created by members of his close family and descendants. Inside, you’ll find drawings and objects by Victor, the sketches, photographs and illuminations of sons François-Victor and Charles, the astonishing prints of mathematician nephew Léopold, the various paintings of grandson Georges and the 20th-century works of Jean.
Paula Modersohn-Becker, L’intensité d’un Regard
Where: Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Champs Élysées and western Paris
When: Tuesday June 21, 2016 – Sunday August 21, 2016
Discover the avant-garde paintings of one of the stars of the expressionist movement. Nearly a hundred paintings and drawings are featured in this exhibition, taking their inspiration from the colourful primitivism of Paul Gauguin, as well as excerpts from her correspondence and diaries. The collection reveals a rich and inspired oeuvre produced by a talented and fascinating young woman.
Where: Musée Picasso, The Marais
When: Tuesday June 21, 2016 – Sunday August 28, 2016
If Picasso’s paintings are celebrated the world over, then his sculptures still remain relatively unknown. The recently renovated Picasso Museum considers the artist’s lesser-known sculpture work. As diverse and inventive as any of his canvases, these sculptures only further underpin his genius.
Pierre Ardouvin: Tout est Affaire de Décor
Where: Beyond the centre
When: Tuesday June 21, 2016 – Sunday September 4, 2016
In the quirky artistic oeuvre of Pierre Ardouvin, found objects and unconventional materials are transformed into bizarre scenes, like sunsets produced using neon and parks made of green plastic. With his ‘Tout est affaire de décor’ exhibition at the MAC/VAL, the artist invites visitors to take a trip into his strange dream world to constantly questioning what’s real and what’s not.
