I visited Grand Palais for Photo Paris and was very impressed with the venue. Grand Palace is truly grand and the renovation makes it seem timeless.

The Gauguin exhibition currently at the Grand Palais Museum is not to be missed! Titled 'Gauguin l'alchimiste' you will see not only a large selection of Gauguin's paintings, but also a selection of his sculptures. (And yes, Gauguin also sculpted!) The museum is open every...More
