Paintings from Afar

PARIS. Through 130 paintings from overseas lands produced when photography did not exist and when travel to such places was reserved to an elite, this exhibition underlines the evolution of the Western perception of distant populations, societies and territories. Featuring works by famous painters like Matisse and Gauguin as well as by much lesser known ones, it shows artists first succumbed to the temptation of exoticism where colour and light fuels dream of luxurious and exotic worlds before becoming closer to reality and taking up an almost documentary approach. Quai Branly Museum. 37 quai Branly, 75007 Paris. Open Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday from 11am to 7pm, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11am to 9pm. Admission : €10 / €7 Information : 0156617000

Foujita exhibition

PARIS. On the occasion of the celebrations marking the fiftieth anniversary of his death, the exhibition “Foujita : Painting in the Roaring Twenties” highlights the artist’s first and very productive Parisian period, from 1913 to 1931, when he worked and lived in Montparnasse.
