ABOUT THE EVENT
“Love in Paris” is not only the romance of spring and passionate confessions on the Eiffel Tower. This is the love of Paris itself, its people, ideas, architecture and the spirit of freedom. This is an attraction for all times and for all.
The exhibition will feature more than 30 works of iconic artists, including Matisse, Degas, Picasso, Chagall, Marriage, Villon, Dongen, Boden, Karzu. Some of them are lithographs with a special history. They were created in the 60s of the XX, as illustrations to the essays of the members of the largest literary society - the Goncourt Academy. Circulation edition was only 180 copies.
In addition, each of them is signed by all authors and artists. “Paris, which stretches before my eyes, gives so many miracles! Here in front of me is the dome of the Disabled Hotel, its modest gold reflects the sun; in the east, the Pantheon seems to be stamped on the Hill of Saint Genevieve; in the east, the Eiffel Tower soars; between them can be seen domes, towers, bell towers, and there are so many of them that I even get lost in them, ”Roland Dorgeles, writer for the collection of essays, says about the Paris series of works by Kees Van Dongen.
