The Douanier Rousseau, the "must see" of Paris spring

Categories : Exhibitions / Museums, published on : 5/5/16

At the Musée d'Orsay this spring, Henri Rousseau’s masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay and the Musée de l'Orangerie are on display alongside paintings on loan from the most prestigious international institutions. Works by Seurat, Delaunay, Kandinsky and Picasso as well as other lesser-known artists, evoke the wealth of interconnections woven around the Douanier Rousseau, the catalyst who stimulated an original way of exploring modernity.
