Foujita is both in Paris and in Avignon !

Les Jardins de Baracane recommends the museums of the city and in particular the surprising Museum Angladon !
In the heart of Avignon, since 1996, a collection of art-rich paintings of the most prestigious signatures is presented in the former mansion of Jean and Paulette Angladon-Dubrujeaud, heirs of the Parisian designer Jacques Doucet, famous collector and patron.
In the museum’s velvet rooms, pieces by Van Gogh, Picasso and Cézanne speak to Sisley. Thomas Lawrence meets Degas or Modigliani … and Fujita today under the spotlights of the Musée Maillol in Paris, unveils his elegant hands in the museum of Avignon.
The Angladon Museum is a real enchantment as well as its curator whose love for the works presented only needs to express itself when you have the chance to meet her and let yourself be guided. Let her tell you the story of Van Gogh’s canvas waiting for Cezanne at the station of Arles and giving to his sky, the blue of absinthe in which he poured.
I might be wrong but I think  that one of her favorite paintings looks like a Japanese print. Ask her…
Upstairs, the salons of the seventeenth and eighteenth century or the Chinese living room restore the incomparable charm of an authentic home of art lovers, with paintings, furniture and art objects.
The pieces of the Angladon Museum – Jacques Doucet Collection are divided into eleven rooms that offer an exceptional career from the Renaissance to the greatest masters of the twentieth century. The collection is regularly enriched thanks to a demanding acquisition policy that solicits amateurs, donors and artists.
To discover absolutely among the narrow pedestrian streets of the prestigious Pope city.
