A good reason to hop over to Paris this spring

Those of you visiting Paris this spring, or even those of you who haven’t yet decided to go, but love art, we recommend the exhibit, ‘The Keys to a Passion’, which is being shown from April 1st at the new Fondation Louis Vuitton.

Fondation Louis Vuitton by Frank Gehry

The impressive building of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, work of the architect Frank Gehry, was inaugurated last October and has become one of the ‘must see’ spots for those visiting the French capital. The building can be found on the tree-lined Bois de Boulogne and was created to house contemporary art exhibits.

A fabulous exhibit

The ‘Keys to a Passion’ exhibit that we are recommending is as impressive as the building it is being held in. The exhibit showcases a selection of work that formed the basis of modernism in the first half of the 20th century, which have become great reference pieces in the history of art. Icons such as Munch’s The Scream, three marvelous Kandinsky offerings, two Bacons, and two exceptional and immense Matisses, a magnificent Rothko, and an entire section devoted to Giacometti sculptures are merely a fraction of the paintings and sculptures that will enthrall you.
