We saw the Camille Pissaro exhibit. There were a few photos at the entrance and then mostly oil and engravings. I liked most of the oils as he really knew how to use light to... read more

We visited the museum to see the temporary exhibition of Camille Pissarro an impressionist painter. First we meandered through the Luxembourg Gardens which is located next to the Museum. Afterwards we went to the cafe in the museum. Very pretty cafe and wonderful pastries. Well worth the time to visit.

I enjoy walking around the Jardins du Luxembourg and the best part of my walk this year was to discover the special exhibit of works by Pissarro in the art museum attached to the gardens. I had not seen any advertising for the exhibit until I reached the gardens. I had never visited the art museum there. The entrance to... More

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 to own one almost as much as I would love to have a Monet or... More

Pissaro exhibition is the best, most interesting collection of his works that I have seen. Well set out, with a story to tell about the development of his style, it is even better than at Marmottan. The fantastic bonus is that, with the exception of one painting, photos (non-flash) are permitted. It is such a huge disappointment to go to... More

This is one of the best single artist exhibits I've seen. Everyone in the museum seemed just so happy and blissed out by the paintings. Don't miss it!

The temporary exhibit is very well curated; I was amazed at the variety of global museums from which this exhibit drew (places such as Oklahoma). The entry was a modest 12 euro, and the audio tour for 5 euro enables you to listen to a well-crafted narrative about Pissarro while staring at a painting or moving around the museum at... More

We saw the Camille Pissaro exhibit. There were a few photos at the entrance and then mostly oil and engravings. I liked most of the oils as he really knew how to use light to produce beautiful work. I thought the admission price was a little high for the size of the exhibition; 12 euros for adults (no senior discount)... More

My wife and I visited the "Pissarro a' Eragny" show shortly after it began. Later, we visited the Pissarro show at the Musee' Marmotton - Monet and found this one more worthwhile. It was much less crowded and we could actually see the paintings up close, rather than obstructed by the heads of other visitors. We learned a lot about... More

We attended a Pissarro exhibition at the Musee du Luxembourg. It was the first day of the presentation and we were expecting long lines. There were lines but they moved at a steady pace. There is an entrance fee but I though it moderate. It was a large gallery of Pissarro painting that show nicely through the many rooms. The... More

This museum only houses special exhibitions --no permanent collection. Whilethere, we saw a lovely Pissarro show that is well worth the visit. The setting is lovely and charminng and the chance to finish a visit in the cafe hosted by Angelina just adds to the magic. Go. Enjoy the art. Enjoy the pastries. And then, enjoy the gorgeous gardens. You're... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
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 musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
