Two Paris Summer Events Art Lovers Shouldn’t Miss

Paris Tours

Paris Summer Events

The city of Paris is hosting excellent art exhibitions this summer, which is one of the major reasons why art lovers should go on Paris tours before the season ends. Some of the most anticipated art exhibitions, which Paris will be hosting this year, include a Walker Evans retrospective, portraits by Cezanne, and the centennial of sculptor Auguste Rodin.

However, these art exhibitions are going to be filled with Parisians and tourists. So, you might not be able to grab tickets for these events if you haven’t booked already. However, you can still attend these following standout art shows and add more beauty and elegance to your Paris tours.

David Hockney

A smash hit in the cities of London and New York, David Hockney retrospective arrived in the City of Lights a few weeks ago. More than 150 works of the famous artist will be presented to visitors and tourists during the event, which will help them know more about the works of the legendary painter.

Some of the most recognized works of David Hockney such as video installations, engravings, photographs, printed works, paintings, monumental landscapes, and double portraits will be put on display during the event.

The earlier paintings of the artist reflected the gritty industrial England where he grew up, although his most noticeable works came after the 1960’s. Hockney has also heavily relied on technology and both critics and art lovers appreciated his sophisticated recent works that were drawn with the help of an iPad.

Christian Dior, Couturier du Reve

One of the most popular and greatest fashion designers and couturiers of the twentieth century will be having a grand fete to celebrate the eponymous fashion house’s 70th anniversary. This massive show will be held at the giant 30,000 square foot exhibition space of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. It is reported that the event will display the entire 70-year history of the brand to the visitors.

In addition to that, the show will also tell us about the subsequent designer who came after Christian Dior. Many art lovers are unaware of the fact that Christian Dior had a great eye for painting, photographs, objects, and antique. He even ran a gallery between 1928 and 1934 before he became a fashion designer. The exhibition will end on January 7, 2018.
