Notable Art Shows in Paris this Spring

As usual there is an abundance of great choice for art in Paris this spring season.  The Orsay is hosting a Bonnard Show, the Grand Palais has a major Velasquez show (the Painter's Painter) and the Pinacotheque has a very interesting show focused on Klimt and the Vienna Secession movement. 

Paris Magnum, the very popular show of images from noted Magnum photographers at the Hotel de Ville (free and well worth a visit) has been extended until April 28.  This show begins with images of Paris at the time of liberation and moves through the subsequent decades until the 1960's.  The images of Paris after WWII are particularly interesting and moving... one forgets the impoverishment and deprivation the citizens experienced as the city and the economy slowly strengthened. 

Of course, this is just a taste of all the art scene in Paris offers.. but a good start!
