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. One of the most acclaimed painters of the 1920s, worshipped by the critics and art lovers, he was at that time more successful than Picasso and Matisse. Featuring one hundred or so works, including two monumental triptychs, originating from public and private collections, it shows the particular sensibility of a man influenced by two very different cultures and highlights all his favourite themes, cats, women, self-portraits and children.
