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.

Martin Essl Le Château Rouge exhibition
at la Belle Juliette until 30th September 2017

Art and Culture, Hôtel La Belle Juliette, newsletter - eng, Photography

For the summer exhibition at the Hôtel and Spa la Belle Juliette, the Galerie Esther Woerdehoff has chosen to present a selection of photos from the series Le Château Rouge by Austrian artist Martin Essl.

Born in 1982, Essl published his first book, Le Château Rouge N°1, in July 2015, the result of three years of work.

The title refers to a Parisian metro station, but that’s just the starting point for a fiction, a voyage across Paris and elsewhere, with the aim of capturing images of everyday life with particular colours and light.
Martin Essl <em>Le Château Rouge exhibition at Belle Juliette until 30th September 2017Each photo is a poem with sharp, bright colours that illuminate the banality of the city, a woman’s body, part of the sky or the front of a bus.

The photographer offers us a poetic wandering with a different approach to our daily environment, inviting us to open our minds to the beauty of the world.

The exhibition is free of course, and the terrace and garden of the Clos Belle Juliette await you afterwards for a refreshing drink or a chic snack from our delicious menu!

The Martin Essl exhibition Le Château Rouge is at the Hôtel & Spa La Belle Juliette (here) until 30th September 2017

Free! Open every day from 11am-10pm

Où sont les femmes exhibition at Studio Harcourt until 30th September 2017

Art and Culture, Photography

With one hotel called les Dames du Panthéon and another called la Belle Juliette, it’s hardly surprising that an exhibition called Where Are the Women (Où sont les femmes) would catch our attention.

Studio Harcourt is a famous French photograph studio with a very particular style that has been immortalising the famous since the 1930s, using immediately recognisable lighting and shadows. In a new location since last spring, the building contains a café, projection room and exhibition space open three days a week to the public.

The current exhibition Où sont les femmes, focusing on all manner of famous women, looks very interesting indeed! Here’s all the info…

Exhibition Les Habitants by Elene Usdin
at the Galerie Esther Woerdehoff
21st June – 13th July 2017

Art and Culture, newsletter - eng, Our favourite things, Photography

Our talented friend Elene Usdin (whose photos are part of the interior design at the Baume, Belle Juliette and each floor of the Dames du Panthéon has a new exhibition coming up with our friends at the Galerie Esther Woerdehoff.

And we are happy to invite you to the gallery opening party on 21st June, with not only free bubbly but also a live concert by Les Argonautes! Yes, Les Argonautes!

Here’s all the info.

With this show, Elene Usdin proves that she is not only an excellent photographer, but that she can also handle the brush like the great classical masters.

The first pieces of her new series Les Habitants, these take the timeless style of portraiture and subvert it by hand-painting on top of each photo the hidden emotions of her teenage models.

The artist thus revolutionises a certain idea of photography – almost a cliché – that define a photo by the fact that it can be reproduced. The photos of Les Habitants are all unique creations, the fruit of long hours spent meticulously embellishing each portrait with a multitude of fantastical figures.

The exhibition is of course free, but if you have some time on the evening of the Fête de la Musique (don’t forget to go down to la Belle Juliette at some point of course) you can be part of the opening party, with a few glasses of bubbly and musical accompaniment from Les Argonautes!

The exhibition Les Habitants by Elene Usdin is at the Galerie Esther Woerdehoff (here) from 21st June – 13th July 2017

Open Tuesday-Saturday, 2-6pm

Opening part 21st June 2017 from 6-9pm

Free!
