Between exceptional retrospectives, tributes and unmissable masterpieces, the autumn exhibitions are dressed in their most beautiful colours.

Head over to the Musée Maillol to engage with the hyperrealism of the sculptures on display, to the Palais Galliera for an intimate encounter with Frida Kahlo, to the Musée Jacquemart-André for a deep dive into the fantastical work of Johann Heinrich Füssli, to the Musée d’Orsay to explore the body of work of painter Edvard Munch, to the brand new Grand Palais Immersif for a virtual journey to Venice that reveals all the city’s secrets, or to the Musée Marmottan Monet which is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the painting Impression, Sunrise by Claude Monet, one of the world’s most famous works and for which Impressionist movement was named. Not to mention Women Activists at the Musée Carnavalet, the history of still life at the Louvre, the dialogue between Claude Monet and Joan Mitchell at the Louis Vuitton Foundation, Louis XV at the Château de Versailles, and Rosa Bonheur, an animal painting specialist, at the Musée d’Orsay … You’ll be spoilt for choice!
