From Miro to Warhol, the Berardo collection in Paris Musée du Luxembourg.

Up to February 22, Paris Musée du Luxembourg shows a selection of the Berardo Collection.

The  billboard shows a reproduction of Tom Wesselmann‘s  Great American Nude (1963), and this charming exhibition shows 76 modern art pieces of the 862 collected by Jose Bernardo. It reminds you that you should take trip to Lisbon and pay a visit to the Belem Cultural Center to see the whole Berardo Collection.

But for the present, it’s nice to walk through this accurate selection of abstract, surrealist, pop art works, from the twenties to the sixties.

Joan Miro, l’Homme à la Bougie,(Man with a candle) 1925

Max Ernst, Coquilles Fleuries (shells in blossom) 1929

Victor Brauner, le Chevalier de glace (the Ice Knight) 1938

Lourdes Castro, Ombre projetée de Claudine Bury, 1964

Andy Warhol, Ten-Foot Flowers, 1967

Though it’s more comfortable to have a reservation than to stand in line under the rain, you may try going in at noon or in the evening (around 19) on the days when the museum opens late.
