Located between the Champs-Elysées and the Eiffel Tower, the palace that houses the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris is a magnificent example of 1930s architecture. It is unquestionably one of the key institutions of Parisian cultural life. The Museum’s collection of more than 13,000 works makes it one of the biggest museums of modern and contemporary art in France.
The permanent collections present all the main artistic trends from the beginning of the 20th century up to the present day, and include major artists from those periods, such as Picasso, Dufy, Modigliani, Derain, Picabia, Chagall, as well as Boltanski, Parreno and Peter Doig. The museum also owns rare and exceptional in situ works, such as the first two versions of La Danse by Matisse and Raoul Dufy’s monumental masterpiece La Fée électricité.
