Oceans at the Muséum national d’Histoire Naturelle

It is far too easy to take our oceans for granted. In fact, that is something that has led to the demise and devastation of many marine ecosystems. Man’s disregard and ignorance about the natural world beneath the waves have led to a terrible relationship with this watery world. Programmes like Blue Planet opened our eyes to the true scale of the oceans, the issues they face and the plight of the creatures within. Now the Muséum national d’Histoire Naturelle aims to increase knowledge and understanding even further with a new exhibition called Oceans. 

Monet-Auburtin at Musee des Impressionnimes Giverny

Jean Francis Auburtin isn’t as famous as some of his contemporaries, such as Monet, but there is no doubt that he tried to emulate and learn from them over his lifetime. He followed in the footsteps of Monet, painting the landscapes around Belle-Île and Étretat to Pourville, Varengeville and Provence to get a better idea of the subject and approaches of his peer. This Spring the musée des impressionnismes Giverny hosts a retrospective that places Auburtin and Monet side by side. It is a chance for art lovers to compare the works and see the importance of both artists. 

Engraving for the King at the Louvre Museum

The art of engraving is one that many of us don’t fully appreciate. We can see the final results and images in some art exhibitions, but we rarely get to see anything regarding the processes. This is all about to change with a new exhibition at the Louvre. This show takes a series of plates and places them with these more familiar images. It is the perfect way for visitors to get a better understanding of the work that goes into creating this sort of artwork. In many cases, the engraved metal plates are just as beautiful as the scenes that they create.
