Pierre Bonnard: Peindre l'Arcadie


From his post-impressionist Nabi experimentation to his Japanophile paintings, the Musée d'Orsay's big summer exhibition this year is all about Bonnard. It's a major undertaking – Bonnard is an unclassifiable painter of intimacy and light, whose canvases...

Splendeurs et misères: La Prostitution en France (1850-1910)

Painting, Sculpture, Photography

If Mary Magdalene held for a long time the somewhat dubious honour of being the most famous prostitute in Western art history, the 19th century heralded the arrival of numerous (and far less pious) other candidates in artists' studios. Manet, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec,...

I agree with Brian. They wouldn't let me eat my baguette sandwich in front of an awesome impressionist painting and they don't allow you to touch the paintings. So disappointed. A must avoid. Simply time-wasting.


I have no clue what's with Brian and Chris. Impressionists! Indeed! The Nabis have always been downstairs. Basic collection on the fifth floor AND adjacent to the light lunch place. It is a FABULOUS place. NOt to be missed!


What a disappointment! We visited the Musee today and discovered that it has recently rearranged it's biggest drawcard, the Impressionists. Most are on the 5th floor, but Van Gogh has been mixed in with Gauguin and moved to the second floor, along with a few other odd paintings. The space is too small to allow a good view of the paintings if even a little crowded (ie Friday afternoon?). The walls are dark grey and there is only downwards yellow lighting to illuminate. The collection is still the best, but the arrangement and display are appalling. If you go, and agree, please complain so they do something.
