Dear Barkley,

Welcome to your personal space on city | art insider. It's where we pull together all the details as we organize our time together.

We are so pleased to be showing you what we like to do for our clients ! As you previously lived in the Marais and visited the Musée Picasso before renovation, we'll try to show you new aspects of that trendy neighborhood.

 

1. musée picasso

The Picasso Museum is interesting for many reasons, and not just Picasso. Closed for 9 years for controversial renovations that more than doubled its size, we are delighted to be able to show you around the 17thC Baroque mansion named the Hôtel Sale, at long last.

The museum's shows works that span the full art of Picasso's creative periods, punctuated with personal effects and snippets of his inspirations. Grouped by themes, the show can be hard to navigate and is light on signposting and information display -- so we will help bring it into coherence.

 

2. the marais

The Marais has a high concentration of art galleries in an old, winding neighborhood. This concentration is even becoming stronger with galleries moving to the neighbourhood, which stretches from the River Seine to the boulevards leading to République. Home also to shopping and trendy boutiques and concept-stores. And very nice places for coffees and lunch! 

We'll be focussing on a selection of the best contemporary art shows at Marais galleries within a 5-8mn walking distance from Musée Picasso.

 

3. Louvre by night

As with all our Louvre visits, you'll see works from Antiquity to the 19th century selected according to your preferences; an ode to human intelligence, skills and beauty.

But at night, the visit is even more incredible: the museum is less crowded, nicely lit, the atmosphere is very romantic. Tonight, you have a date with art!

Because we know you have dinner arrangements, these visits are 1&1/2 to 2 hours in length.

Only on Wednesdays and Fridays, 7-9 pm or 7:30-9:30.
