Jeff Koons at Centre Georges Pompidou – Beaubourg

This book then had a strong influence on artists throughout Europe, contributing to the rise of both Impressionism and Art Nouveau. The Grand Palais presents no less than 700 pieces, which were created throughout his seven-decade career, in Paris, the city where Hokusai’s genius was first recognized outside of Japan. Online tickets sold out.
