The Grand Palais des Champs Elysées presents a new edition of the annual art fair Art Paris Art Fair.
Dedicated to the 18th-century masterpieces in Paris churches, the exhibition showcases different sketches as well as valuable religious paintings which were created from the Régence period up until the French Revolution.
The exhibition which features more than 100 works from landscape paintings to works on paper made by some of the most popular artists including Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Vassily Kandinsky, Claude Monet, and Georgia O’Keeffe, sheds light on the period between 1880 and 1930, a period during which a great number of European and North American artists chose to follow the path of spiritual development and experience rather than materialism and traditional religious institutions.
Until February 12th, 2017, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris will be putting on display an exhibition dedicated to the famous American minimalist artist Carl Andre (b. 1935).
