To discover in October

Exhibitions
The Musée du Luxembourg highlights Jean-Honoré Fragonard through the prism of love. More than 80 of his libertine and naughty pieces are presented, describing him as one of the most important painters of the 18th century, but also flirtatious, daringly cheeky, accurately depicting the feeling and the impulse of love. Fragonard amoureux, until January 24th.

The Musée d’Art moderne honors the icon of American pop-art Andy Warhol with the exhibition Unlimited. To emphasize on the serial dimension of his work, over 200 pieces, among which Shadows (1978-79), and an ensemble of 102 serigraphied frames, as monumental as they are iconic, have been gathered. Until February 7th.

Musical
The brand new London production of Cats is scheduled at the Théâtre Mogador for 90 exceptional representations in French. Relive the special evening of the Jellicle cats and their big ball. Only one will be chosen to step into feline paradise and take on a new lease on life. Beautiful costumes, make-up and decors, powerful yet graceful choreographies… a must see!
