Imagine an exhibit dedicated to the paintings of some of the most famous French artists then imagine 2 more exhibits all combined in one. Got the image? 3 huge exhibits filled with amazing French paintings all in one exhibit. Well, this imagination has become reality.
Passport to Paris is a fantastic exhibition that you should not miss. 3 exhibits filled with paintings from famous French artists like Monet and Pissaro but also the famous Dutch artist Van Gogh, all in one. The first exhibit is called “Court to Café” and it features 3 centuries of French Art Masterpieces. The second exhibit is the Drawing Room which features some drawing and sketches. The third exhibit is called “Nature as Muse” and it holds many Impressionism pieces.
You do not need to know a lot about French Art when entering “Court to Café” because everything is explained for you. When entering the exhibition you are handed an audio device that will give you a tour and explain all the paintings and its history.
My favorite part of this exhibit is the Drawing Room. In this room there are several beautiful drawings and sketches. What I love about this room is that it holds a drawing from the famous Spanish artist Picasso. Also, there is a magnifier in this room that allows you to look up close and see the details of the drawing. An amazing thing about this exhibit is that if you look very closely at the paintings you can see the actual brush strokes and where they mixed colors.
Some of my favorites are a mix of paintings and drawings by Monet, Andrieu, and Watteau.
This exhibit was a huge success in my opinion and should not be missed. Passport to Paris is here to stay from October 27th to February 9th. Do not miss out on the exhibit of a lifetime!
