I’ve realized I had 13 pages of warm and lovely acknowledgments received from my wonderful clients since 2013 and  I’ve never published  them…so I’ve decided to share with you the ones I’ve received last year. In my file PAGES (see on right) I will post all of them, starting with the most recent, going back to 2012.

You always have such fantastic ideas !

My best to you

 

  •   October   : 

Beth W. from Washington:

Thank you so much Anne.  We are so grateful that you were there to show them around our favorite city!  I’m sure they told you but neither of them had ever traveled to Paris so having you as their guide was a real treat.

Hopefully David and I will find a time to visit this year and we will definitely reach out to you for another tour.

All the best, Beth

David G from Washington : 

Anne – you are the best. I’m just a little bitter we couldn’t be along as well!

  • June  : 

Amy W. from Baltimore : 

Hello Anne! I hope you are well. A few years ago my husband and I had the pleasure of spending a day in Paris with you –– the morning was bakeries, cheese and desserts, and the afternoon was a wonderful art tour. To job your memory, I was in Paris lecturing at SciencePo, and my husband is an amateur baker who fell in love with all the bakeries you brought us to. It remains the highlight of our travels to France.

It’s great to hear back from you! We will change our plans so that we can spend an entire day with you – The agenda sounds terrific, and we are very much looking forward to seeing you again!

What to see now and this spring 2019 in Paris ? Here is my top 4 worth seeing shows :

Posted in Art, art advisor, art and culture, event, exhibition, Lifestyle curator, Paris, private guide in Paris on February 14, 2019 by ParisDeluxe&Arty

Among the must-see exhibitions this coming spring and already visible now, the fabulous show in Custodia Foundation is unmissable and the title says it all : 500 years of Master’s drawings from Pouchkine Museum. How exciting !

It is said that if you exhibit a drawing 3 months you have to storage it 3 years in order to protect the work against the damages of light. That’s why you can’t see permanently drawing’s collection from outstanding museum on display but only temporary shows. And usually you have to travel to see these marvels. Sometimes few drawings from the museum are lent for a temporary exhibition abroad but rarely a huge ensemble.

Then you realize how lucky we are in Paris to admire a wonderful bunch of 195 works coming from renowned Pouchkine museum in Moscow and representative of the history of drawing : from the German and Italian Renaissance to the European and Russian avant-garde of the twentieth century !

If you prefer postwar paintings Vasarely outstanding retrospective in Pompidou Center is for you ! It’s the first one ever organized in France showing all the facets of the father of Optical Art (called also Op’ art) through 300 works and documents  including paintings, sculptures, multiples, architectural integrations, advertising, studies, objects…

With the hungarian artist Abstract geometry can be fun and feels alive through selected forms and seductive colors. Art for all in everyday life was also is concern. Complete, clever and playful, it’s the ideal family show and a great opportunity to rediscover an artist inscribed in our visual heritage of the 70’s and 80’s.

The Courtauld collection from London at Louis Vuitton Foundation :

Thanks to the refurbishment of Sommerset House planned for the coming two years,   acclaimed impressionnist masterpieces such as Un Bar aux Folies Bergères by Manet and the somptuous Loge (the Theatre Box) by Renoir were able to leave London until mid-june. How lucky we are in Paris to admire them ! Even if I’m used to getting together everytime I travel to London- like visiting french friends established on the other side of the chanel- it’s always good to see artworks in a new context.

Hope the british people are grateful to Mr Samuel Courtauld, who had french roots, to have made impressionist and post-impressionist artists accepted and recognized in Great Britain, through his stunning personal collection first -actually lovely built with his wife Elizabeth in a record time : from 1923 to 1929- and then through the fund he created on purpose for the National Galleries in order to fill artistic gaps regarding “modern” french school.

It was not an easy task reminds us the catalogue of the exhibition as many british people, still very conservative regarding art, considered french impressionist and post impressionist artists not worthy to be exhibited in public collection ! By the way, the most horrible critics were addressed towards… Cézanne who was judged -even in the 20’s as a bad painter ! Well, his sense of space distorsion with daring points of view disrupted many british minds meanwhile Courtauld  himself  was immediately overwhelmed by the Master of Aix when he visited the famous exhibition at Burlington Fine Arts in 1922 showing a selection of artworks from french school of the last 100 years. 

The british industrial – who made fortune thanks to viscose- started then just the year after, in 1923, to collect paintings. Not at all to satisfy any socialite activity but rather to accomplish an artistic mission : give at least the right place Manet, Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Gaugin, Van Gogh, Seurat deserved in UK. His wish was supported by a great sense of sharing his vision with a large audience as Art brought his so much in his life he desired to offer to a large public the possibility to elevate themselves their spirits thanks to Art, in times of industrialisations and materialism. He even went further with the creation of the Courtauld Institute of Art in 1931, which was not only a place where visitors could admire an outstanding private collection gathering masterpieces of modernity, but also a university section to teach Art History, which not yet a real academic discipline. The aim was to spread then this knowledge through the country and to form future curators and directors of museum.

All I can say is mission accomplished Mr Courtauld as the Institute is today famous and renowned in Art world !

If you’re not familiar with this collection and its fabulous history,  I will be delighted to give you a private tour. Please contact me through my mail if you wish more informations (amuraro@sfr.fr).

Great dialogues between works displayed and surprises too when we come to abstraction with Picasso, like in this picture below where the spanish master’s finds his place in the middle 😉 …

A must see until august 25th.

My top 3 exhibitions to see in Paris this spring 2017.

Posted in Art, art advisor, art and culture, Lifestyle curator, museums, Paris, private guide in Paris, trips on May 7, 2017 by ParisDeluxe&Arty

If you’re coming to Paris in may or june, don’t miss these shows :

  1. Rodin, the exhibition of the centenary at Grand-Palais :

The french master of sculpture died in 1917, one hundred year ago exactly, and this show curated by the actual director of Rodin Museum -Catherine Chevillot- and the former one- Antoinette Lenormand-Romain- ( they were both my teachers at Ecole du Louvre)  demonstrate in a masterful way why and how Rodin was a forunner, a visionary, a tireless inventor who influenced generations of artists, from his time to today.

This exhibition which is not a classic retrospective will take you deep into the creative process of the artist who became himself a monument of french sculpture.  The best tribute the curators can offer to Rodin to commemorate his true genius indeed and therefore a must see exhibition if you’re in Paris soon  !

2. Olga Picasso in Picasso museum

A very moving hommage to the first -official -wife of Picasso. They met in 1917 while the spanish painter was working with Les ballets Russes in Rome for the show “Parade”. She was a professional russian dancer , she was classy and beautiful, they fell in love in the eternal city and got married in Paris in 1918. She became his favorite model , depicted alone, reading, often thoughtful , or with their new born, Paul , showing lovely intimate moments of motherhood.

Unfortunately these quiet and happy times of domestic life won’t last …Olga was suffering in silence.  First she felt powerless away from her family  who endured the terrible repression  from the october revolution in Russia -while she had an exciting worldly life in Paris-then she stopped dancing-the passion of her life- because of an injure and her pregnancy, and finally, the relationship with her husband crumbled, as the crual female portraits made by Picasso in the mid-20’s show it.

It was high time to devote an entire exhibition to Olga, who was actually almost unknown by the public at large . To answer to this exceptional event, the family lent not only paintings but also precious archives ( letters- photographs – documents), some of them exhibited for the first time,  that shed a new light on Picasso’s works and life and reveals the odd and unique destiny of a russian woman in the early 20th century.

3. Gardens in Grand-Palais

Since the antiquity artists have always been inspired by nature and celebrated it through fine arts or decorative arts and even high end jewelry. Paintings, sculptures, artifacts, later photography, video, installation, created by the most outstanding artist of each great artistic period  bear witness of it. This is exactly what this exhibition curated by talented director of Picasso  museum , Laurent Le Bon, demonstrates with a selection of artworks from the Renaissance to today.  You are invited to an exquisite promenade in company of Dürer, Klimt, Matisse, Fragonard, Monet , Cézanne, Cartier, Mellerio, to name but a few. This is a fabulous feel-good exhibition that will make you want to cultivate your own-real- garden !

My top 3 must-see exhibitions this season in Paris !

Posted in Art, art advisor, art and culture, museums, Paris, private guide in Paris on October 29, 2016 by ParisDeluxe&Arty

1) Chtchoukine collection in Fondation Louis Vuitton (until february 20th)

This breathtaking exhibition is exceptional and unique in more ways than one. First, the collector himself : a russian moghul of textile in the ending 19th century, who formed his eyes traveling Asia, Africa and India, selecting motifs and managing stocks for the family company. He started to collect french Art when he was 44,  thanks to his brother Ivan who settled down in Paris and introduced him to famous art dealer Durand-Ruel. Then the way he collected  : he had a great intuition of what was important for the development of Art and acquired sometimes against his own taste works by Matisse or Picasso which were also highly contested by critics and public. It happened he wrote to Matisse : ” I hope I will like one day your work”  ! Or said about Picasso : “He’s right, I’m wrong”.  As soon as 1907 he had the project to offer his collection to  Moscow and opened it to the public a year later, giving tours to amateurs  he received in his splendid mansion-former Palace Troubetskoy-like the russian avant-garde including Malevitch, Larionov, Rodtchenko.. . Finally the destiny of the collection  : after the October Revolution, it was nationalized, transformed, mixed with Morosov collection and then divided in 1948 between Moscow, in Pouchkine museum, and Saint Petersburg, in the Ermitage museum. Meanwhile Chtchoukine fled from Moscow in 1918 and settled down in Paris where he lived discreetly until his death in 1936, leaving his collection behind him for ever. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see half of the original ensemble gathered for the first time since it had been divided and to admire this unique journey of an outstanding project created only in 15 years for the essential, from 1898 to 1914, including famous masterpieces by Monet, Gauguin, Cézanne, Picasso, Matisse… and telling the story of western modern art !

IMG_1114.jpg

Gauguin-Vairumati Tei Oa – 1892

2) Magritte in Pompidou Center (until january 23rd)

If you still think that Magritte was a surrealist painter, run and see this clever exhibition that will surprise you !

The tone is set with 3 paintings exhibited at the entrance showing self-portraits ( or assimilated) as a philosopher. The belgium artist wanted to show that a painter was able to express ideas with images, calling into question this old conflict between words and images, established since the antiquity through the story of Moses and the Tables of Law, or the famous myth of grotto told by Platon, where images were always considered to be suspicious and under reality or truth. With his subversive humour and ability to create unexpected images, using a logical process only- almost mathematical- from 1932 onwards, which was by the way at the opposite of dream state and unconsciousness used by surrealist, Magritte wanted to evoke the mystery of life, present in our daily reality. Other topics, proper to art history and the creation of images are present in this exhibition, such as the importance of shadows in Magritte’s works,  related to the story of Dibutade and the invention of portrait or the seek of perfect proportions through selection, fragmentation and recomposition where a parallel with Zeuxis (when he wanted to create the best portrait of Helena) is drawn.

This angle of view cast unprecedent light on Magritte images, so clever, sharp and powerful that one might says : Ut pictura philosophiae !

IMG_0333.jpg

Magritte- Les 6 Eléments- 1928

3) Bahaus in Decorative Art Museum (until febrary 26th)

Going back to the roots ! All about this legendary school that set up the golden rules of actual design and blossomed in 1919 in Germany, before being stopped by the accession to power of nazis in 1933. We start from sources of inspiration with mingei style in japan and Wiener werkstätte in Austria to finish with actual designers and fashion designers still under the influence of the mythic german mouvement who wanted to abolish borders between craftmanship and art, celebrating know-how and fine arts theories. Among the most renowned masters who taught there and left a strong print we find Kandinsky, Klee, Albers…The exhibition is complete and doesn’t forget to show  also the relations of Bauhaus with modern dance and choreography. That makes ” The Spirit of Bauhaus”  a must see in Paris !

IMG_0949.jpg

Josef Albers-Aufwärts 1926-( glass)

What to see in Paris this spring/summer, my top list :

Posted in Art, art and culture, contemporary art, museums, news, Paris, private guide in Paris, trips on April 12, 2016 by ParisDeluxe&Arty
  1. Paul Klee at Pompidou Center until august 1st  : A genius ! It’s the easiest way to sum up this unclassifiable artist, creator of 10 000 artworks !  He never belonged blindly to a mouvement, and always called into question the greatest modernist trends,   from cubism, dadaism, surrealism, constructivism and abstraction, through the lens of irony, the best way to remain himself. His great sens of composition and his fabulous  taste for colours, textures and materials made him an outstanding artist in the art history of XX th century. Run to see this exhibition where 60 % of the works displayed are shown for the first time in France ! I could speak during hours about this show that is so unique and will make you feel good after visiting it, despite a political context at the end of his life which was tragic.
  2. Picasso-sculptures  in Picasso museum until august 28th : another genius, at ease in many artistic disciplines, including sculpture ! The great idea of this exhibition is to show the total mastery of this medium by the spanish master, from the very beginning to the end in the 70 ‘s, from tiny to monumental, from naturalistic to almost abstract, from wood to stone and metal… Don’t come to find paintings- actually you have just one floor in the museum devoted to this medium-  but that’s gigantic and really worth seeing ! Without forgetting the exhibition of amazing ceramic works, paintings and works on paper  from 1990 to today by famous spanish artist Miquel Barcelo, until september 30th.
  3. Douanier Rousseau in Orsay museum  until july 17th : yes painting is like poetry sometimes and we have a good example with this wonderful exhibition that you cross like a dream. It’s also a clever and new approach with parallel drawn with many art references.
  4. Guillaume Apollinaire, the gaze of a poet, in Orangerie Museum  until july 18th : the famous french poet who was the friend of avant-garde-artist like Picasso and lover of Marie Laurencin, was also an important art critic and theorist. He defended cubism, forged the label  “Orphism” for Delaunay ‘s colorful art,  wrote probably himself the manifesto of futurism, and introduced Paul Guillaume in parisian artistic circles, just to quote few artistic achievements on his short-but prolific-career ! If you like and want to explore the relationships between art and poetry at the beginning of the XXth century , this exhibition is definitely for you.
  5. Between sculpture and photography, at Rodin museum july 17th : with works by John Chamberlain (1927-2011), Cy Twombly (1928-2011), Dieter Appelt (born 1935), Markus Raetz (born 1941), Mac Adams (born 1943), Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978), Richard Long (born 1945), Giuseppe Penone (born 1947). These artists have in common the use of both medium : photography  and sculpture in their practice, but the approach and results are all different. An interesting angle of view to discover in this pleasant exhibition.
