Louis Vuitton Centre Paris: wonderful exhibition

There is a wonderful exhibition of French Impressionists and Pablo Picasso at the building that Frank Gehry designed to ‘recognise Paris’s  cultural vocation.’ This is now called the Foundation Louis Vuitton .

The centre is in the Bois De Boulogne – from a distance it looks rather like a large plastic insect with unfolded wings. I decided I would not like it : I was wrong.

As you approach it there is a beautiful waterfall – continuously flowing water down some grey steps but very engaging, holding your attention and producing a sense of restfulness and calm. 

There was a long, long queue enveloping the building: tip buy an internet ticket or enter through the Jardin d’Acclimatation (worth a visit themselves) where there is no queue. Then prepare to queue for each salon but it is a magical exhibition in a (yes I came round to this) a stunning building with wonderful views of Paris from its terraces.
