Un soutien financier

Recently I told you about six museum exhibits in Paris during the summer of 2012. Here are six more appealing possibilities. Several of these are already open. They are arranged in order of the date that they will close.

Cima – Master of the Venetian Renaissance (Musée du Luxembourg – until July 15 2012) Cima da Conegliano was among the greatest painters working in Venice in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth century, when the city became one of the most brilliant centers of the Italian Renaissance.

Kabuki: Japanese Theater Costumes (Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent – until July 15, 2012) This is the first exhibit costumes, photographs, and documentary footage devoted to Kabuki in Paris.

The Twilight of the Pharaohs: Masterpieces of the last Egyptian dynasties (Jacquemart-André Museum – until July 23, 2012) Over 100 exceptional artifacts on loan from the largest Ancient Egypt collections in the world demonstrate the breadth and diversity of Egyptian art.

Tutankhamen – his tomb and his treasures (Porte de Versailles – from May 12 to September 1, 2012) This is billed as a spectacular reconstitution of the tomb and treasures of the Pharaoh.

Les histories de Babar (Arts Décoratifs – until September 2, 2012) This exhibit celebrates the little elephant’s 80th birthday.

Modigliani, Soutine et l’aventure de Montparnasse (Pinacothèque de Paris – until September 9, 2012) This exhibit is the personal collection of Jonas Netter, whose soutien financier (soo-tea-N fee-nah-see-ay) or financial support made the career of Modigliani possible.
