Van Gogh | Artaud, Orsay Museum, Paris

One of the most compelling art exhibitions I have ever seen is now showing in Paris at the Orsay Museum, until July 6th, “Van Gogh/Artaud, The Man Suicided by Society.” The title translates awkwardly into English, especially if you do not subscribe to the ideas that Vincent killed himself, or that he was insane, […]

Eugene Boudin is a great artist whose creativity has often been damned with faint praise, as in the paean ‘King of the skies.’ He is not usually recognized as a major influence in the evolution of western art and the fact that he has not been the subject of a single retrospective since 1899 […]

Stunning Exhibition at Decorative Arts Museum

Of the more than 120 museums in Paris, one of the most interesting rarely gets the attention it deserves, over-shadowed as it is by its neighbor, the Louvre.

Monet and Abstraction – A Challenging Exposition at the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris

Lovers of the art of Claude Monet can see an imaginative exposition of some of his works juxtaposed with later works of pure abstract art, including works by Jackson Pollock, Gerhard Richter, Mark Rothko, Clifford Still, Lee Krasner, André Masson, Sam Francis, Joan Mitchell and others. It makes the case that those works of […]
