Fodor's 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 works 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, skeptics wondered whether Paris needed another museum: the crowds massing out front answered those critics. 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 blending periods and styles (imagine a Rembrandt paired with a Pollock). For popular shows, pay an extra €1.50 to buy your ticket online and cut the queue.
