Van Gogh’s Back in Town!

The Atelier des Lumières has done it again! The 2018 Klimt exhibition was a great success. I posted about my experience after I attended it.

Now I am hearing from a number of sources that the Van Gogh (1853-1890) is also a powerful immersive experience. If you plan to be in Paris, I suggest you purchase your tickets prior to your visit. The exhibition runs until the end of 2019…

I plan to enjoy another deeply moving experience at the Atelier des Lumieres…Here is the website to get even more of a flavor of what the experience will be: https://www.atelier-lumieres.com/en/home

If you want to arrange to have a meal nearby, try Bistro Paul Bert or Le 6 Paul Bert. Reservations are most likely needed. Either one is about a 15-20 minute walk from the exhibition. Try this website for information on Bistro Paul Bert: http://parisbymouth.com/bistrot-paul-bert/

And here is the website for Le 6 Paul Bert: http://www.le6paulbert.com/en:

Remember this one? Arles-Sunflowers 1889

  1. Thanks Judy. Van Gogh is one of my favs. We watched the movie At Eternity’s Gate about the life of Van Gogh. Very good and Willem DeFoe was amazing playing him. This exhibit looks so inviting portraying some of his best works. Wish I could be there!!
