Many exhibitions are held here round the year. This is one of the most prominent exhibition site in and around Paris. Last week we saw this exhibition on Pissarro named as ‘Pissarro in Eragny’ portraying last two decades of his life. No free entry.

Always admiring the detailed tiny brushstrokes of Pissaro, but who knew of his life, his extensive periods, what a talent! The exhibit was well appointed and explained his different life phases along with the related artworks.

What a wonderful exhibit of everyday life! I learned so much about Pissarro's work and family life. Afterwards, you can enjoy the Luxembourg Gardens and have tea sandwiches, coffee and dessert at Angelinas... all in the same location.

If you're into Pissarro go - but it is a small poorly lit exhibit. And no permanent collection. Neither the exhibit nor the Gardens are memorable.

This showing of Carmine Pissarro's works and life in Normandy made us appreciate his talent and accomplishments. When his works are buried among the many other great impressionists, he disappears. Alone you see the wow factor. The many Pissarro oils exhibited here made me want...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

We bought the tickets on line via the website and didn't encounter any problems, we noted on the day that the queue was short so buying in advance may not be absolutely necessary.
