Widely known for his proficiency in depicting movement in his work as well as for his remarkable preference for drawing and painting dancers, on the centenary of his death, the French artist Edgar Degas is honored at Musée d’Orsay with an exhibition focusing on the essay “Degas Danse Dessin” which was written by his friend Paul Valéry, in 1936.

From June 13th through September 24th, 2017, the Musée d’Orsay is hosting “Portraits by Cézanne”, a major touring exhibition that is devoted to works by the popular French Post-Impressionist painter Paul Cézanne (1839 – 1906).
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.
“Fantin-Latour. A fleur de peau”, a magnificent retrospective that will be taking center stage at the famous Parisian art museum, the Musée du Luxembourg, until February 12, 2017.
This year, around 190 galleries from more than 25 countries are on the program, a considerable number of which will be shown hors les murs at the Petit Palais, the Musée Eugène Delacroix, the Tuileries Gardens, and Place Vendôme.
