I went on a short but busy city trip to Paris. I went to multiple museums and galleries. Paris is museum wise one of my favourite cities, most of the museums are free when you’re under 25 and the art collections are crazy.
I went with my boyfriend and we stayed in an AirBnB perfectly located on the Boulevard Saint Germain, in front of the Café des Flores. I’m a hopeless romantic; I identify to practically every Jane Austen heroine and can’t get enough of Manet and Renoir. You probably can guess which museum I went first. Musée D’Orsay is one of my all time favourite museums. I’m not going to talk much about it because I don’t feel it is needed.
I also visited Centre Pompidou (only the modern art wing, as the contemporary art wing is closed until march), Omar Victor Diop, Malick Sidibé and Chris Shaw at Galerie du Jour Agnes B., Per Kirkeby at Bernard Vidal – Nathalie Bertoux and finally a few wings of the Louvre (18th – 19th French art).
Here are my highlights in no particular order:
in Gabrielle d’Estrées et une de ses soeurs
Manet, Déjeuner sur l’herbe
Eduoard Manet, L’Olympia
Gustave Courbet, L’Origine du Monde
