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.
The exhibition—From Zurbaran to Rothko—displays works by both ancient masters, such as Canaletto, Guardi, and Goya, and modern ones... Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Picasso, Modigliani and Giacometti. The collection is considered one of the most important in all of Europe.
*The exhibition runs from March 3 to July 10, 2017
158, Boulevard Haussmann (close to the Champs Elysées)
*Opening Hours: Daily 10 a.m to 6 p.m. Late night opening on Mondays until 8.30 p.m
Special Tip: Housed in the mansion’s former dining room—and called “the most beautiful Tea Room in Paris”—the Café Jacquemart-André serves pastries created by some of the best pastry chefs in the city, as well as light lunches daily. The Sunday brunch here is a Parisian favorite.
Hours: Monday-Saturday: 11:45 to 5:30; Sunday 11 to 2:30. The Café is also open until 8:30 p.m. on Mondays during special exhibitions.
NOTE: The public is welcome at the Café; museum tickets are not required.
