Despite its echoes of Paris’s architectural past, Frank Gehry’s latest museum project—the Fondation Louis Vuitton, in the Bois de Boulogne—is like nothing the city has seen before: muscular and delicate, utilitarian and fantastic, a marriage of cultural ambition and private enterprise,” so says Vanity Fair. Architecture aside, and it is wonderful, with new vistas of Paris, it is also a superb home for the visual arts, with both a permanent collection (see pic) and temporary exhibition, in my case a selection of works by artists who were key to the development of modernity – Kupka, Rothko, Dix, Leger and Picabia, to name but a handful.
