Neighbourhood of art and culture
The Hôtel d'Aubusson is located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, in the 6th arrondissement. The neighbourhood's artistic and cultural vocation has lasted since the 17th - 18th centuries. Philosophers, the writers of the "Encyclopédie", revolutionaries, students, and many more met there and exchanged ideas, gradually turning Saint-Germain-des-Prés into a privileged meeting place for intellectuals. After the Second World War, this centre of cultural life in Paris saw artists, jazz musicians, singers, scholars, journalists, and more, take over the fashionable cafés and clubs.
This exciting atmosphere can still be seen in the neighbourhood and has forged the very special identity of the Left Bank of Paris: literary cafés, piano bars such as the Café Laurent, art galleries, publishers, antique dealers, young fashion creators have already chosen to establish themselves there. A bohemian atmosphere reigns over the narrow streets around the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, as well as the Sorbonne in the nearby Latin Quarter.
Things to see and do in the neighbourhood:
- The Delacroix Museum: it occupies the apartment and studio where the painter lived from 1857 to 1863 and organises exhibitions around the artist's work.
- The Maillol Museum: discover the sculptor's work. Thematic exhibitions are also organised here.
- The Rodin Museum: sculptures, sketches and other masterpieces offer you the chance to discover the artist. An exceptional collection which, in particular, includes The Gates of Hell and The Thinker.
- The Cluny Museum: a short walk from the Sorbonne, this museum houses one of the largest collections of medieval art in the world.
- Luxembourg Gardens: treat yourself to a relaxing break between the fountains and flowerbeds. The gardens regularly play host to exhibitions, in particular photographic exhibitions, presented on the railings which surround them.
- The Odéon Theatre
- The churches of Saint-Sulpice and Saint-Germain-des-Prés

THE EPIC OF THE SUEZ CANAL Pharaohs in the 21st century From 28 March 2018 to 5 August 2018
Much more than a simple visit, it is an immersive experience that invites the exhibition, over a course structured in four stages. And first of all, welcome to the inauguration of the canal, with great pomp, November 17, 1869. Settle into one of the three official stands raised for the occasion, dive into the newspaper or ... look at the news on big screen ! In the presence of leading personalities from the Arab and European worlds, including Empress Eugenie and Emir Abdelkader, relive the event, prefiguring universal exhibitions and reflecting the will of modernization of Egypt in the nineteenth century. Then go back to the origins of the canal, some 1800 years before our era. Because the idea was born very early to allow boats to go from the Nile to the Red Sea and thus, in fact, connect it to the Mediterranean. Numerous will be the sovereigns to attach their name to the project - Sesostris III, the first to order its digging, then Nekao II, the great Darius, Ptolemy II Philadelphus, Trajan ... This proto-channel will be regularly disembarrassed, until the beginning of the conquest Arab.

THE WATER LILIES. American Abstract Painting and the last Monet From 13 April 2018 to 20 august 2018
In 1955, Alfred Barr brought one of Monet’s large panels of Water Lilies (W1992) into the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, at a time when these great "decorations", still in the studio in Giverny, were beginning to attract the attention of collectors and museums. Monet was presented at that time as "a bridge between the naturalism of early Impressionism and the highly developed school of Abstract Art" in New York, with his Water Lilies seen in the context of Pollock’s paintings, such as Autumn Rhythm (number 30), 1950. The reception of these later Monet works resonated with American Abstract Expression then coming into the museum collections. At the same time, the idea of "Abstract Impressionism" was forged. The exhibition at the Musée de l’Orangerie focuses on this precise moment - when the great decorations of the master of Giverny were rediscovered and the New York School of Abstract Art was recognised - with a selection of some of Monet’s later works and around twenty major paintings by American artists such as Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still, Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, Philip Guston, Joan Mitchell, Mark Tobey, Sam Francis, Jean-Paul Riopelle and Ellsworth Kelly.
