Bonjour Art Lovers!

For any art-lovers heading to Paris this spring, the outstanding new exhibition opening March 3 at the Musée Jacquemart-André is not-to-be-missed. This private collection, amassed by the Spanish Marquise and business magnate, Alicia Koplowitz, includes nearly 50 masterpieces—many of which have never been publicly displayed before.
