Irving Penn exhibition at the Grand Palais
21st September 2017 – 29th January 2018

Art and Culture, Photography

To celebrate the centenary of his birth, the Grand Palais pays homage to one of the most important photographers of the 20th century Irving Penn.

Organised in partnership with the Met in New York, the exhibition explores the talent of the man who immortalised Yves Saint Laurent, Audrey Hepburn, Pablo Picasso, Alfred Hitchcock and many more. However, Penn’s work wasn’t limited to simple portraiture, far from it…

This is the first European retrospective of his work to be organised since his death! Here are all the details.

Monet the collector exhibition
at the Marmottan Museum
14th September 2017 – 14th January 2018

Art and Culture

Claude Monet was a great painter obviously, but you might not know that he was also a big art collector, with some pieces donated by friends and many other bought full price.

This incredible collection was sold off and the list of its contents lost, but thanks to the tireless research of the exhibition’s two curators, many of the pieces have been brought back together for four months, including works by Cézanne, Renoir, Manet, Delacroix, Pissarro, Rodin, Toulouse-Lautrec…

Here’s all the info.
