Orsay Museum devotes a nice exhibition to Henri Rousseau, said le Douanier Rousseau. His works are exhibited alongside those who have inspired him. This parallel allows the visitor to situate the artist, his time and his contemporaries. The most fascinating works are those in which he painted the nature and animals. What beautiful mastery of plants, leaves and trees, flowers also. If you are or if you are plaaning a trip to Paris... And the Musée d'Orsay is full of treasures,... linger is a joy.
At the Musée d'Orsay from March 22 to July 17, 2016

Ragnar Kjartansson, Icelandic artist , is honored at the MAC these days. Three of its installations are presented. La Salamandre has a heart crush for "The Visitors", an installation consisting of 9 videos screens - animated pictures - in which stand musicians and singers, all in the same mansion, each one performing in a different room, playing all together a piece of music for an hour. The spectator finds himself "in the mansion", moving from one room to another at the discretion of the music, following the musicians... The place is enchanting, the music also, and the picture views are perfect. An experience not to be missed under any circumstances!
From February 11 to May 22, 2016.
You probably know that Vincent van Gogh created a painting in the late 19th century called "Bedroom in Arles." It depicts the Dutch artist's electric blue quarters in what's known as his Yellow House, located, yes, in Arles, France.
You may also know that van Gogh actually created three versions of the now iconic bedroom image -- the first in October 1888, the second and third in September 1889. Van Gogh, taken with the original, decided to make the two subsequent renditions after learning that water damage threatened the integrity of the original. The three are currently on view together for the first time in North America at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Van Gogh's three "Bedrooms in Arles" are on view at the Art Institute of Chicago until May 10, 2016.
