The only museum in the world that offers an overall view on the 20th and 21st cent. in a totally renewed historical presentation opening in 2007. This historical journey begins with the founding fathers of Modern Art (Matisse, Picasso, Duchamp, Kandinsky, Ernst, Warhol, etc.) and carries on to the latest contemporary artists.
The Musée national d’art moderne
After two thematic exhibitions, the Museum will be showing its masterpieces as part of two new chronological presentations, occupying once again all of the 4th and 5th floors. The modern collections as of 1 February – over 1,300 works, more than 500 periodicals, a denser and more diversified itinerary to highlight the artists and the works of the first half of the 20th century, and to present the museum's latest acquisitions in the field, followed by the contemporary collections. The 500 works of the contemporary collections are organised around a chronological principle chosen as a guiding thread which regularly makes way for showing works under specific themes and presents any recent acquisitions. In April en 2007, the Musée national d'art moderne is back to its blissful self.
The striking building of the 20th century, designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers.
The top floor opens out onto a wide-open, far-reaching view of Paris, featuring the Sacré Coeur, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, Pantheon, and Conciergerie.
