Excellent Abstract Exhibition (Chu Teh-Chun)

Did the Klimt exhibition. Despite many people, very nice exhibition again at la Pinacothèque (3rd time I went there !)

Very little space, too many people. Very few paintings by Klimt In this tiny exhibition space, the biggest wall is covered by a reproduction ( frieze). Some nice paintings by other great artists, but very difficult to see. And you feel pushed to go as quickly as possible due to the crowd. Expensive and disappointing.

The rooms are absurdly small to accommodate the Paris crowds. You can barely see the works themselves, there are so many people and the museum itself is incredibly understaffed. There are few actual works of Klimt. Like many others, we felt completely ripped off.

Yes the Beethoven frieze was marvellous, and the two other major works. I know the exhibition was called in the time of Klimt, but, frankly, there should have been more of his works and fewer of his contemporaries, even then, there were not many of Schiele or Kokoscka. It is a very cramped space. The explanations on the walls are... More

€8 Entrance for three (small) halls. A total cacophony of styles and periods just mashed together with no logical sense whatsoever. On top of this the permanent collection displayed the worst art pieces of what a famous artist could offer. I have never felt so disappointed in a museum. A genuine tourist trap. I did not see the temporary exhibits... More

We saw the very good exhibition about Cleopatra. There was much to see, from sculptures and paintings about her. She seems to have captured the imagination of many of history's best painters. What I liked best was the short movie about movies about her. They also showed the clothing that Elizabeth Taylor used in the movie about Cleopatra. The clothing... More

Beautiful abstracts, pieces exposed in a spacious, well lit environment. The room wasn't overcrowded. I had time to sit and enjoy the works on display. I would definitely recommend this gallery as an alternative to the hectic, overcrowded mainstream haunts of old. Chu Teh-Chun is definitely someone to discover, relatively unknown to me until I discovered his work back at... More

We had the opportunity to visit all 3 exhibitions: Brueghel dynasty, Goya and mdernity and Chu Teh-Chun. Brueghel and Chu Teh Chun beeing the best. The las painter offers rich and bright colours, just marvelous.

First of all, this gallery is somewhat hard to find and you have to go down the street to buy your ticket from a ticket booth unless the exhibit you want to see is located in the building where you buy the ticket. Lighting could have been better but the exhibition itself was well organized. It took about an hour... More

The Pinacotheque is a great addition to the panoply of Paris museums, with its multiple venues and steady stream of exhibits greatly increasing the odds that you will find something of interest (and with tickets available!) at any given moment. The Breughel exposition is fully up to museum standards, with lots of background information, and a large number and rich... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
