We think you'll find this space quite a surprise. As well as the obligatory smart showroom/exhibition space on the ground floor, the Renault Atelier (literally, workshop) gets our vote for the cosiest spot of all the car manufacturers.
Bright, airy and futuristic, their multi-level restaurant/bar serves pretty tasty food and not at ridiculous prices (rather rare in the area). Perhaps that's why they get almost 2 million visitors a year?!
Diego Velasquez exhibition for the 1st time in Paris
Born in Seville in 1599, Diego Velázquez, leader of the Spanish school, is the official painter of King Philip IV when Spain dominated the world.
A major figure in the history of art, Diego Velázquez (1599- 1660) is arguably the most famous painters of the Spanish Golden Age.
The exhibition intends to present a comprehensive overview of the work of Diego Velázquez.
However, although he is one of the most famous artists and admired then as now, no mono-graphic exhibition in France never showed the genius of Velasuqez except that of Manet "painter of painters".
The rarity of his paintings and their legitimate concentration in the Prado Museum make it particularly difficult to organize a comprehensive retrospective.
This is the challenge faced by the Louvre and the Grand Palais, which join forces in collaboration with the Kunsthistorishes Museum in Vienna and with generous support from the Prado Museum.
It addresses as well the issue of variations in styles and subjects in the first compositions of Velázquez, the transition between naturalism and Caravaggio, as well as His equal Ability to perform landscapes, portraits and history paintings.
