A must see in Paris: 

LE PALAIS ROYAL



The Palais-Royal, originally called the Palais-Cardinal, is a former royal palace located in the 1st arrondissement.
The screened entrance court faces the Place du Palais-Royal, opposite the Louvre. The larger inner courtyard, the Cour d'Honneur, since 1986 contains Daniel Buren's site-specific art piece, known as “Les Colonnes de Buren”.  In 1830 the Cour d'Honneur was enclosed to the north by the most famous of Paris's covered arcades, the Galerie d'Orléans; its flanking rows of columns still stand between the Cour d'Honneur and the Gardens. The Palais-Royal is nowadays the seat of the Ministry of Culture and the Constitutional Council.


We are at your disposal for many private tours in Paris, around Paris and on long distance excursion in France.

MANGUIN, 
"the Joy of Colour"
Exhibition
from July 14 to November 5, 2017

Henri Manguin, described as the ‘voluptuous painter’ by Apollinaire, celebrated the joy of life through Arcadian themes, nudes, Mediterranean landscapes, scenes of family life and still lifes.
From his formative years, when his first experiments in Impressionism were accompanied by the teaching of Gustave Moreau, to the First World War, the artist remained true to the expression of a harmonious sensuality.


Manguin “devant la fenêtre”


The exhibition Manguin, the Joy of Colour at the musée des impressionnismes Giverny features around ninety works that retrace the career of this friend of Henri Matisse. It focuses on the period when Manguin, who from an early age demonstrated an exceptional talent for the inventive use of colour harmonies, worked in tandem with – and sometimes anticipated – the bold innovations of the Fauves, with whom he exhibited at the Salon d'Automne of 1905
