Pinacothèque de Paris

Pinacothèque de Paris Review

The Pinacothèque, one of the city's most original art spaces, stages a steadily rotating calendar of crowd-pleasing shows by marquee names such as Van Gogh, Vermeer, Goya, and Munch. The exhibitions are often eclectic, bringing together masters and lesser-known artists whose work share a link, such as Modigliani and the French artist Chaïm Soutine. Director Marc Restellini is used to stirring things up. When he opened the Pinacothèque in 2003, skeptics wondered whether Paris needed another museum: the crowds massing out front answered those critics. In 2011, Restellini followed up by opening Pincothèque 2 at 8 rue Vignon, just steps away from the main venue behind the Église de la Madeleine. It hosts temporary exhibitions and has a small but notable permanent collection that blends periods and styles (imagine a Rembrandt paired with a Pollack). For popular shows, pay an extra €1.50 to buy your ticket online and cut the queue.
