The best Paris art gallery!
The squares of Paris are famous and few are more famous than the Place de Bastille, the best Paris art gallery, named for the prison that was overrun by revolutionaries in dramatic circumstances in June of 1789 during the French Revolution.
Since you’ll be visiting this square, you should extend your sightseeing to include the lovely Place des Vosges, the best Paris art gallery, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful squares in Paris. Those with an interest in the history of Paris might recognize the name ‘Place Royale’, but the name of the square was changed after the revolution to honour Vosges County, the first County to begin paying taxes post-revolution. This square is similar to the Place Ducale in Charleville- Mézières.
You can get to this best Paris art gallery by taking the Rue Saint Antoine and Rue de Birague. Here you will find Victor Hugo’s house and a restaurant called L’Ambroisie which has been crowned with three Michelin stars thanks to the fine dining it offers. However, this is not only a spot for gastronomes and history aficionados – art-lovers flock to the Place des Vosges to view a combination of around six art galleries that combine to create an open air museum of contemporary art. The galleries are situated from numbers 21 to 24 and the first and last of these are owned by the same family who are best known for promoting the work of Chinikov, Micha Tauber & the photo art of Lirone.
If you would like to see renowned artists at work, then you should visit the Vivendi Gallery at number 28. Resident artists with well-known names such as Arnauld and Lee Kui Dae are among the artists who may be found at work and very fine reproductions of iconic works such as those of Warhol can be found. Round off your day of art appreciation by visiting Galerie 26 and Galerie Modus.
