European relations are as strong as ever – at least in the art world. The Musée Jacquemart-André in Paris will this year benefit from 70 loaned pieces by English watercolour master J. M. W. Turner, in a welcome act of cross-channel friendliness.
Presented in collaboration with Tate Britain, many of the pieces on display in Turner. Paintings and watercolours from the Tate come from the Romantic painter's own private collection, donated upon his death in 1851.
This chronological exhibition allows visitors to trace the development of Turner's artistic style, from the realism of his early pieces to the acclaimed work with light and color that marked the maturing of his oeuvre. From English landscapes to Venetian lagoons, Turner's vibrant depictions of the world are as pleasing to the eye in 2020 as they were in the 19th century.
Hungry for culture? Come and explore Musée Jacquemart-André, one of Paris's top museums for art connoisseurs. Skip the line and learn about this huge private art collection with an audio guide.
Musée Jacquemart-André feels more like a family home than a museum - perhaps because it used to be one. Elegant French couple Édouard André and Nélie Jacquemart resided here in the late 19th-century and amassed a huge collection of Italian art.
This lavish property, close to the Champs-Elysées, became a museum in 1916, and showcases all their treasures.
Peruse 15th and 16th-century Italian sculptures, plus the Florentine Gallery and its religious works in the Italian Museum. And don't miss the hall resembling a beautiful Venetian Palazzo, which houses the Venetian Gallery.
It's a museum, a family home, and a glimpse of the lives of affluent Parisians, all in one.
After your visit, grab some lunch or cup of coffee at the museum's café. It has a stunning interior and a beautiful terrace.
