Quebec City is a beautiful place, especially during the autumn. I’ve often thought that parts of Old Quebec look exactly like what most people think Paris looks like. Now if that isn’t enough to persuade you to visit one of the oldest cities in North America then this should.
From October 10, 2013 until February 16, 2014 , the Musee National des Beaux Arts du Quebec will be presenting The William S. Paley Collection: A Taste for Modernism.
The exhibition is made up of 62 French Impressionist and post-Impressionist, paintings sculptures and graphic works from the collection of Paley, who along with having a fine eye for art also founded the CBS television network.
Artists featured in the exhibition include Cezanne, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Edgar Degas, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre Bonnard, Georges Roualt and Andre Derain. Paley described the way he felt when looking at his collection as, “voluptuous aesthetic delight.”
