Leonardo da Vinci

Musée du Louvre, Paris

For the 500th anniversary of Leonardo's death, the Louvre's exhibition drew over a million visitors. A fascinating journey through the life and works of this amazing artist, from Florence to Milan and the Loire valley, and a wonderful way to  understand Leonardo's creation process and his influence over the artists of his time and beyond.

Visitors were enthralled : 'We wouldn't have enjoyed the exhibit as much had we been here by ourselves!'

hours
Felix Feneon. The modern times, from Seurat to Matisse

Musée de Orangerie museum, Paris

Art lover, collector, dealer, literature critic, anarchist, Félix Fénéon is one of the key people who contributed to the development of modern art. Long forgotten, he built bridges between art movements and cultures, defending the neo-impressionnists, the Nabis, the Fauves, the Futurists, and very probably one of the first Europeans to be interested in African and Oceanic art (and to call it such).

The audience was enchanted: 'I had never heard of him. What a character!'
