Paris hosts several temporary art exhibits this April, which will prolong to the upcoming months when the city capital starts to get hot. While some exhibits complete in May or June, others complete only in late July. So, the schedule would change depending on the museum or art gallery that organizes these events in the City of Lights. A compilation of some exciting Parisian exhibitions is listed below for art lovers.
An Exhibit on Baltic Symbolism in Musée d’Orsay
The states that constitute Baltic nations Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia gained independence following the First World War. The museum in Paris hosts an exhibit that commemorates 100 years of independence of these Baltic states, which runs until July 15, 2018.
To pay tributes to that, the museum uses artworks that are symbolic of their cultures, folk, legends, and landscapes from late 1900’s to late 1920’s. Most of the featured artists’ works are shown for the first time beyond their native country in the exhibit, except for Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis, whose works have been displayed outside Lithuania in the past.
An Expo on Grand Siècle in Musée du Louvre
The engravings of the French draftsman named Israël Silvestre are renowned since they are widely circulated. In comparison to that, his drawings have got less exposure to the public up until now. That is because the Louvre Museum exhibits this rare collection of 17th Century drawings of France during the reign of Louis XIV.
If you go on a private Louvre Museum tour anytime soon, you can catch his drawings on European cityscapes, architectures, and gardens being shown for the first time. The exhibit started in March and will end on June 25.
Guernica in Musée Picasso
The Picasso Museum in Le Marais hosts an exhibit centered mostly on the iconic 20th Century painting by Pablo Picasso from March to July 29, 2018. The Parisian museum collaborates with Reina Sofia Museum and Archives Nationales de France for the ‘Guernica’ exhibition.
It throws lights on the oil canvas painting and plans to educate people on its history, and clarify queries concerning the political engagement of Pablo Picasso, with an array of related sketches loaned from the museum in Spain & archives loaned from the National Archives of France. Add this to your Louvre Museum tour itinerary and make your one-off visit into an enjoyable museum-hopping experience in Paris.
