Arts in Paris today and much more
The Grevin Museum in Paris is famous for its brilliant wax models and fun exhibitions. However, some of the residents and displays were getting a little tired. Paris regulars could probably have walked the route blindfolded. The curators decided the time had come for a full-scale renovation – and they did not hold back.

Monet is one of the most celebrated landscape painters in France, and with good reason. His work captures the essence of a scene with beautiful attention to the subject and the light. The French master created brilliant works as he travelled around the country, with a keen interest in the landscapes of Belle-Île, Étretat, Pourville, Varengeville and Provence.

The name Emil Georg Bührle may not be that familiar to many people in Paris. But, he is actually one of the most renowned German art collectors of recent times. He sought to create a stunning, diverse collection in the 1950s and ended up with more than 600 pieces from various artists.

There are some modern art museums that will offer a slight nod to Cubism in their collections – a couple of pieces here and there from the more well-known masters. More often than not, this means a Picasso piece. Attitudes like these explain why there are so many people that don’t fully appreciate the breadth of Cubism across the 20th century, nor the field of artists that shaped it.

When you ask anyone to name an old Italian master – regardless of the era or movement – many are sure to say Caravaggio. This is true for those that may not even have seen any of his work for themselves. The name alone has elevated the man to great heights and he will always be considered one of the greats.

Japan and Japanese design have been at the forefront of exhibitions and gallery spaces in Paris this year. The Japonisms 2018 series saw many Japanese artists and curators come to the city with a vast range of shows and ideas. This was a great opportunity to see what artists are creating across Japan right now. However, there is another show that has a Japanese flavour of a different kind.

Egon Schiele is a Viennese artist that will always divide opinion. While there are many that herald his talent and place as a visionary in the 1910s, others will still find his work shocking and distasteful.

Some collections of paintings and items in an exhibition can have greater significance than others. Sometimes it can seem as though the items are random and only fit a vague theme. Other times there are clever threads or rare collections. The Marquis Campana’s Collection – currently visible in the A Dream Of Italy Exhibition at the Louvre – is a great example of the latter. Here staff and experts from Paris and St Petersburg have brought a broken, historic collection back together.

The Cruel Stories of Paula Rego at Musee de l’Orangerie brings some strange female figures and socio-political viewpoints to Paris. Rego didn’t hold back in her portrayal of the female form, the twisted social standings of subjects or the dark variations of fairytales. Her use of mannequins in the studio and pastel polyptychs led to some curious and engaging work. Distorted figures and dark narratives guide those “cruel stories” into interesting territory.

Every now and then, a gallery comes up with a title for an exhibition that hits the mark in more ways than one. This is definitely true of the Treasures of Kyoto exhibition at the Cernuschi Museum.
