What's on in Paris in Winter/Spring 2001
Editorial Collection

A few metro stops from each other there are two interesting exhibitions to be discovered: American artists at the 1900 Paris "Exposition universelle" in the Carnavalet Museum, and Picasso's erotic drawings and paintings at the Jeu de Paume National Gallery.

The two faces of art at the turn of the century

We took a tour of the "School of Paris" exhibition last month and described how Paris became the center of so-called "avant garde" art movements such as Cubism or Abstract art in the period after the "Universal Exhibition" of 1900. In fact, to have an even larger view of how art was developing at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century, it would be interesting to visit two other exhibitions in Paris.

Read further on the American artists at the "Universal Exposition" and the contrast that existed with European artists of the same epoch such as Picasso.
