Kadinsky and Cezanne in the City of Lights
In 2018 when they opened the place, the first exhibition was of Klimt.
Later on, I also got to see Van Gogh’s exhibition.
There is no doubt, every time I visit I am left amazed!
The World Cup celebrations are at their peak! Visitors to Paris in the near future will surely find the street festivities joyful!
So between the victory celebrations, good food and quality wine, visit the most talked about exhibition in Paris and soak up some culture.
In the center of Paris, in the 11th arrondissement not far from the Bastille, in a rather small street, you will find this hidden cultural center gem - l'Atelier des lumières
The contemporary exhibition in the complex pays great respect to two artists, Cezanne and Kandinsky, who have already exhibited in the past in all the major museums worldwide, but there is no doubt that in this complex the experience is completely different & unique!
The works are exhibited in a huge 3300 m2 showground with 10 meters high A walls.
Of course, each of these amazing artists deserve a separate post, so just briefly, a few words about each of them:
Cezanne, 1839-1906, born in France.
The great father of modern art which flourished in Paris at the beginning of the 20th century.
– “The completely blue scent of the pine trees, which is pungent in the sunlight, should be married with the green scent of the prairie that refreshes itself every morning, with the scent of the rocks, with its’ distant perfume”
…I approach with the same drive, the same faith, everything that scatters…everything we see, aka it scatters, disappears. Nature always remains the same. Revealed art should give us the taste of eternity…”
Wassily Kandinsky 1866 – 1944
Василий Васильевич Кандинский
A Russian painter and an art theorist. Considered one of the most famous painters of the 20th century and a pioneer in abstract painting. Studied in Germany. When the Nazis came to power he fled Germany and settled in France, where he lived and created until his death in 1944
“Color is the keyboard [of the piano], the eyes are the hammer [which hits the piano strings], the soul is the piano and its strings”
