Description

The Fondation Louis Vuitton brings together 70 works by 23 artists from all over the world, from the 60s to now, all around the theme of painting. Presented in parallel with the Courtauld collection, this selection of artworks illustrates how painting as an art form has constantly reinvented itself over the years, with styles ranging from the abstract to the figurative and the expressive to the distanced. Rooms devoted to the works of Joan Mitchell, Alex Katz, Gerhard Richter, Ettore Spalletti, Yayoi Kusama and Jesús Rafael Soto are mixed in with others dedicated to the themes of abstraction, space and colour.

Fondation Louis Vuitton

The Fondation Louis Vuitton, situated in the Bois de Boulogne, a stone's throw from the Jardin d’Acclimatation, opened its doors on 27 October 2014. The Foundation's exceptional contemporary art collections (permanent and temporary) are exhibited in an architectural gem designed by the American Frank Gehry. This visionary architect has revolutionised the use of glass and created previously unimagined shapes to produce a unique and innovative light and airy building. In addition to the artistic and architectural richness of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, the visitor is also afforded wonderful panoramic views from the various terraces of the building.
