Exhibitions

Pablo Picasso « Blue and Rose »: an exhibition not-to-be-missed at the Musée d’Orsay until January 6th. This one focuses on 5 crucial years of the art of Pablo Picasso, these years of blues followed by joy known as the periods of blue and rose.

The Musée Jacquemart-André puts the spotlight on a leading figure in 17th-century European painting with Caravaggio’s Roman Period, his friends and enemies. Many of his masterpieces, some of which unseen in France, recount his Roman career until his escape in 1606 and will dialogue with works of his contemporaries. Until January 28th.

Jean-Michel Basquiat and Egon Schiele at the Fondation Louis Vuitton from October 3rd: two exhibitions which differ by their style, their period, their origin, but by two passionate artists who were both shooting stars in the field of art in their time.

Ballet

 Invited at the Palais Garnier, Ohad Naharin presents Decadance, abounding with extracts from his creations revealing the multiplicity of his sources of inspiration. The Israeli choreographer explores boundaries and the explosive power of the « Gaga » gesture he created, carrying his dancers along in a ballet of virtuoso and sensual energy, shaped by a flux of emotions. Until October 19th.

Restaurants

Jean-Edern Hurstel, former Chef of the Peninsula, has opened his first restaurant, Edern. Located near Place de l’Etoile, in a lovely decor by Paul Bishop, with a lounge bar on the lower ground floor, he treats us with, to start: goat’s cheese cromesquis; pissaladière; gravelax salmon; crab or beef carpaccio with spices; followed by: cod, artichokes and shellfish; veal cutlet, macaronis with ceps; and for dessert the Norvegian omelette or the apple tart and the delightful mini-pastries. – 6 rue Arsène Houssaye, Paris 8th.

Ducasse sur Seine invites you for a cruise, for lunch or for dinner, to live the experience of a total immersion in the heart of Paris. Berthed Port Debilly, at the bottom of Trocadéro, the new floating restaurant of Alain Ducasse, proposes gastronomic cruises: « Déjeuner sur Seine » which reminds us of the Museums’ iconic works which defined the journey and the cruise « Nuit étoilée » where the boat weaves in and out in the illuminated city and ends its route in front of the sparkling Eiffel Tower. Get on board for one hour and a half for the greatest pleasure of the eyes and palates. – Port Debilly, Paris 16th.
