Art Paris Breaks

Paris Breaks for Art

Sometimes dedicating entire Paris breaks to Art is completely justified. Paris is a kind of epicentre when it comes to all sorts of cutural heights and art is perhaps the archetype. I'm not talking about tacky charicature buskers in the square next to the Sacre Coeur but about fine art in all its forms. Architecture, painting, sculpture and especially nodern art with its installations and experiential exhibitions. All of this is based on history with famous and up and coming artists being drawn to Paris from all over the world in a succession of waves that have continued throughout the centuries.

The Picasso museum in Paris is currently closed for extended refurbishment but the Rodin is well worth a visit just to start off with, if you are a new to artistic Paris breaks. After that you can find all sorts of gems just by following your nose or sensibilities.
