A unique set of around fifteen paintings and drawings that pay homage to nature.

Grove Evacuation, Ethan Murrow, The Girls of Calvary, 2021

The artist, born on a farm in Fermont, recharged his batteries during the pandemic, in his garden, under the trees. Then inspiration came to him.

These works feature him with the head of a bouquet of flowers or a tree and exploit the relationship between man and tool. Magritte's influence is undeniable in the paintings where the man is balanced on a pile of books or engaged in a surrealist duet with a sheep as in "The Passage".

There is magic in the air, farmers offer flowers to rain spirits or dance for abundance and fertility. It's happy and festive.

Until November 25, 2023

With the artist Malacarne, we dive into the Big Blue

With the artist Malacarne, we dive into the Big Blue

Why go to the sea when you can find it in the Marais, at the Menouar gallery, rue du Parc-Royal? Here, we dive directly into the Big Blue with the work of Malacarne, a post-impressionist artist of reflection, light and water whose brush caresses the surface of the sea.

Susumu Shingu, praise of slowness

Susumu Shingu, praise of slowness

At the Jeanne Bucher Jaeger gallery, a century-old space at the bottom of a courtyard, around thirty drawings and kinetic sculptures, moving works by the Japanese artist Susumu Shingu, are displayed. It was a trend in vogue in the 1950s, led by artists such as the Athenian Takis or the Brazilian Soto.

Marilyn forever

Marilyn forever

Sixty years after her death, Marilyn still embodies the eternal feminine. In the heart of the Marais, Joseph gallery, the Monroe Experience offers a digital and poetic exhibition until November 21, to better understand the myth and the woman, a start-up before her time, entrepreneur and modern for the time (sexual freedom , psychoanalysis etc.).

Millet, from the mountains to the Marais

Millet, from the mountains to the Marais

From the top of this outdoor and technical clothing store, a hundred years of family history gaze down upon you. Created in 1921 in Chamonix, the Millet brand is still managed by the family of the same name. It is therefore a bit of French heritage and know-how that arrives from the Alps to settle in the Marais…

Divine brunch at the foot of Notre-Dame

Divine brunch at the foot of Notre-Dame

Of course, officially, it is not the Marais. But at Son de la Terre, a barge recently moored at the Montebello quay (5th), the 4th arrondissement is in sight. Moreover, this one is incredible: on one side, it is Notre-Dame flooded with sunlight; on the other, the quays, the book sellers, the walkers, the joggers.

Saka, a cocktail bar like in Tokyo

Saka, a cocktail bar like in Tokyo

Here is an address which gives the measure of the transformation of the Marais. And it's enough to silence the grumpy people whose mantra is: “It was better before…” No, everything was not better “before” in the Marais. Besides, there was no American bar like Saka, which cultivates a form of excellence that can only be found in Japan.

WHAAAAAAAT?!
