Full description
Skip the lines to the Centre Pompidou and let an expert local guide take you on an immersive, 2-hour visit through one of the most exciting and extensive collections of modern art, spanning the years from 1905 to 1965, and a fascinating and thought-provoking collection of contemporary works from the past 50 years. Upon arrival, admire the extraordinary Centre Pompidou, which, like many of the artworks shown inside, was decried when it first burst into the world, and yet is now recognized as one of the iconic buildings of Paris. Inside, the freedom that the Impressionist artists you may have seen at the Musée d’Orsay fought so hard for is expressed here in all its spectacular creativity. During your visit, see masterpieces by Picasso, Matisse, Dali, Duchamp, Chagall, Andy Warhol, Man Ray, and many others. Learn how they pushed the boundaries and broke the rules, questioning the forms and meaning of art as each of them brought something new into the world. This visit is an exploration, as was the art you will see. Your guide will lead you to the most important pieces in this amazing collection, explain the groundbreaking artistic movements that questioned how we see the world and represented it in new and innovative ways, and help you interpret and understand the sensational — and often controversial — artworks. You’ll also step into contemporary works by living artists, and find yourself transported inside the minds and emotions of these forward-thinking artists as you not only see, but feel and experience their work in new and surprising ways. It’s a perfect museum for families — kids and teens will love this visit — and diving deep into these works can be a great introduction for them to the wonders of the artistic world.
