CENTRE GEORGES POMPIDOU

THE Permanent Collection:

The museum certainly ranks high amongst
the most significant dedicated to modern art in the world and  traces the evolution of art from Fauvism and
Cubism to the contemporary art scene.

The exceptional collection housed by the Centre
Georges Pompidou is drawn from the Museum of Modern Art of the city of Paris
and also from bequests made by artists’ families (Matisse, Chagall, Picasso,
Delaunay, Brancusi, Rouault, Kupka, Henri Laurens, Magritte Kandinski…).

The collection includes the following periods :

Fauvism : 1905-10

Cubism : 1907-18

Russian School : 1900-30

Abstract Art 1910-40

Paris School : 1910-1930

Surrealism : 1950’s

American School : 1940-1950

French Art : 1950’s

This visit will serve as an introduction to students
who wish to discover the richness of the Centre Pompidou. The museum is able to
present only 700-800 works of its art out of the some 35 000 that it houses.

MONTMARTRE, or
the « Butte » as it is known locally, is the part of Paris most full
of contrasts : anonymous boulevards to small delightful village streets…
from simply dressed residents out doing their local shopping to fancy club goers
who don’t go home until the early hours of the morning !

History :

The name
Montmartre dates back to Roman times. The name probably comes from two sources
on the hill : from a temple dedicated to Mercury or Mars, and also from local
martyrs who were tortured in the area some time around AD 250.

In the Middle
Ages, the hill was the flourishing centre for a Benedictine convent. The
convent continued to play an important role under Henry IV and later Louis XIV.
In 1794, during the French Revolution, the last abbess was guillotined and the
convent buildings were razed. The area then became known as “Mont-Marat”.

In 1871,
Montmartre played an important role of resistance first against the Prussians
and then as a point of resistance of the Commune de Paris against the French
Government, located at the time  in
Versailles.

Montmartre is
probably best known for its 19th century artists and men of letters
who lived a “bohemian” life style for that period. One thinks particularly of
the composer Berlioz, the poet Gérard Nerval, the song-writer, Aristide Bruant,
or the artist, Toulouse-Lautrec. After this period, later generations of
artists congregated more in Montparnasse (in South-Central Paris), and
abandoned Montmartre to its nocturnal entertainments.

Today:

Montmartre
draws tourists in search of the “Belle Epoque”, or to enjoy the fabulous view
from the hill over the city of Paris.

The Visit :

Students will
be invited to visit the unknown parts of the “Butte”: its vineyards, the garden
of the Villa des Brouillards, the residence of Gerard Nerval, the “Place du
Tertre”, Utrillo’s house…and the tiny streets of the Butte. Certain of the
secret places that the crowds going to the Sacré Cœur Church don’t know!

a Historic Quarter of Paris,

Located
in

the 4th “Arrondisement

History :

In
the 13th Century, marshland surrounding the raised rue St Antoine, an old Roman
thoroughfare, was drained and converted into arable land. In the 14th Century,
this area, known as “le Marais” was brought into the city limits of
Paris. By the beginning of the 17th Century, the, then, “Place
Royale”, now the well-known “Place des Vosges”, built by Henri
IV, had become the focal point of the Marais.The Jesuits were the first to
settle along the rue St. Antoine, with members of the nobility and the royal
courtiers following after ; splendid mansions were erected and decorated by the
best contemporary artists. These hotels, are
discrete classically designed private residences, standing between an entrance
court and a garden. They were developed as a distinctive feature of French
architecture during this period.The quarter also attracted intellectuals,
philosophers and musicians.

Then,
gradually, the Paris nobility began to move West to the Ile St-Louis. After the
event of the taking of the Bastille, the quarter was virtually abandoned, and
it lasted during the next generations. In the 1960’s, the derelict quarter was
essentially saved from complete destruction by André Malraux, Minister of the
Arts under Charles de Gaulle.

The Marais today :

This quarter,
which stretches between Place de la Bastille and Place de l’Hôtel de Ville, the
Seine and the quarter “du Temple”, has become a very fashionable
place to live for Parisians.  Businesses,
built up traditionally around tailoring, have in part been revived by
internationally successful young fashion designers.The quarter “du
Temple” is notable for jewellers and goldsmiths.

The fine
pre-Revolution residential architecture has been restored and many of these old
buildings have been converted into museums, galleries, and municipal
offices.  In the summer months, many of
the old hôtels are the sites for
concerts during the well-known annual music “Festival du Marais”.

The Carnavalet
Museum :

Construction
was begun in 1548: the building took on its present appearance in 1655. The
Marquise de Sévigné, who wrote her famous “Letters” on daly life of the
bourgeoisie in the 17th century, lived in the mansion  from 1677-1696. Today the museum houses
beautiful collections of paintings, furniture, and othe relics which  illustratate the history of Paris.
