Cézanne and Paris

The Hotel Pulitzer Paris recommends “Cézanne and Paris
-
Cézanne did not only paint Provençal scenes. In the course of twenty trips to Paris, the artist learned a style of painting that he would continue to develop in Provence, attracting interest and praise from critics, art dealers and collectors. The 80 works in this exhibition provide insight into the southern painter’s time in Paris.
.
The first section describes his arrival in Paris, his training in the city and early paintings, taking a close look at his mastery of landscape painting and use of Impressionist techniques. It goes on to explore Cézanne’s nudes. Working at a time when erotic paintings were becoming increasingly popular, he experimented with new ways to portray female nudes and invented his particular pictorial representation of them.
.
Still lifes also make up a significant portion of Cézanne’s work, and the exhibition spotlights the way he creates space and depth of perspective, and his masterly use of colour and shapes in his depictions of objects as well as his portraits and erotic paintings.

1. Musee du Louvre
Musee du Louvre, Paris, Ile-de-France

Like the Louvre, interesting collectiong housed within an interesting building. A must if you enjoy art.

Museum of wine. Pretty sure I don’t have to say anymore.

Barcelona, June 2009. Hotel Pulitzer Paris (www.hotelpulitzer.com), 3-stars boutique
hotel located in a historical building, in the Opera area of Paris, presents a brand-new
decoration of the spaces.
The decoration of the 44 rooms, reception area, breakfast room and the lobby has been structured by the Argentinean interior decorator Luzio, based in Barcelona.
He says that he has been inspired on the Paris elegance, its antiquarian eccentricities and the recycling of industrial objects.
Everything was set with the condition that the spaces shouldn’t look or feel like a hotel, moreover he was encouraged to create non standard elements and move away from traditional hotel design.
Amongst the raw materials used, old style leather on the sofas, oak floors, marble at the
chimney, the industrial iron on some furniture, and other decoration elements stand out
most.
The hotel offers spaces full of life and with a cosmopolitan air, in order to create a place
to enjoy life to the maximum for the guests.
Hotel Pulitzer Paris offers 29 Standard rooms and 15 Superior rooms.
They have micro-cement floors and industrial iron furniture which contrasts with lamps
of the 50’s and its white walls and bed linen. The basins are made with the same kind of
marble as Taj Mahal.
They are fully equipped with everything to guarantee the utmost comfort during the
stay:
minibar, safe, satellite LCD TV, direct telephone line, air conditioning/heating, wake-up
call service, desk, free WiFi, hairdryer, slippers, magnifying mirror, Fragonard bath

The magical Low-Cost rate!

Friday, June 12th, 2009

I bet you cant see the magical number!
Barcelona Milan
We are very used to think that the Low-Cost rates are the solution to travel and save money at the time but the real rate sometimes is not the one that they show us. Sometimes we have to use our glasses and understand how to calculate the real rate of the Low-Cost tickets.
Let me show how to estimate the real price of one Ticket that I saw the last week.
Barcelona-Milan 10 €
Transport from the city to the airport 12 Euros x 4 = 48. So we have 58 including the price of the ticket
Bag registration 20 + 58 = 78
Online registration (we have to do this registration before the departure and then in the return) 15 x 2 = 30 + 78 = 108 and this is the real final price!
So we have to take care about this magical prices and learn how to find the hide number of the Low-Cost rates!
