- Gold, Yves Saint Laurent museum
until May 14, 2023
You have until May 14, 2023, to admire the exhibition dedicated to Yves Saint Laurent on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of his first fashion show. It’s also a chance to see how the fifth anniversary of the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris was celebrated. To better celebrate these two important anniversaries, a large exhibition explores the use of gold by the French designer. Yves Saint Laurent had a true passion for the precious metal.
The exhibition presents 40 high fashion and prêt-à-porter clothes, as well as a selection of accessories, objects, and jewels. From the buttons on his iconic coats to the entirely gilded dresses, everything tells Yves Saint Laurent’s fascination for this color, which has been a source of artistic inspiration throughout his career.
- Matisse exhibition, Musée de l’Orangerie
Until May 29, 2023
Among the exhibitions about the different periods of Henri Matisse’s career, very few have looked specifically at the 1930s. The exhibition “Matisse. Cahiers d’art, le tournant des années 30” is dedicated exclusively to this decade. In 1930, Matisse leaves France on a trip to Tahiti, thus voluntarily marking a break in his creation and initiating a breakthrough in his work. Paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, film fragments, and issues of the magazine Cahiers d’Art tell how the French artist emerged from the creative crisis that had struck him at the age of 60 to return to creating on the easel with new techniques. The exhibition brings together several artworks rarely exhibited in France such as “Large Reclining Nude” from 1935 and “Le Chant” from 1938.
