Talk to some art lovers about the idea of a deconstructed painting and they may cringe. It sounds a little as though someone has broken up or distorted a masterpiece. However, a new exhibition about Gustav Klimt does just that – only in a safe, digital medium. Projections of key paintings are comprised of different sections and layers, with figures jumping out like characters in a play. It all makes for a more interesting, interactive experience.

Those that want to study the history and styles of this art form now have the perfect opportunity with the De Calder à Koons, bijoux d’artistes exhibition at Musée des Arts Décoratifs.
Their current show – which runs until July 16th – is a celebration of the Vitebsk Art School. More specifically, it honours the work of El Lissitzky, Kazimir Malevitch, and their peer Marc Chagall. There are more than 200 pieces of art on display here, with work ranging from the period of 1918 to 1922.
The exhibition includes around fifty pieces from the Musée d’Orsay’s own collection. This is the perfect chance to see the colour, textures, and effects created by these creative artists. Viewers can compare the look of the enamels against the painted waxes to see if these masters really did capture their subjects with illusionism intended.
Israël Silvestre is one of the French artists of the Baroque period who is mostly known for his engravings.
