    • THE COURTAULD COLLECTION AT FONDATION LOUIS VUITTON - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    From February 20th to June 17th 2019, the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris presents the collection of Samuel Courtauld, the English industrialist and patron of the arts.

    “The Courtauld Collection: A Vision for Impressionism” brings together some 110 works, including 60 paintings and graphic pieces, which are mainly conserved in the Courtauld Gallery or in different international public and private collections. It will enable the French public to discover some of the greatest French paintings from the end of the 19th century and from the very beginning of the 20th century in Paris, sixty years after their first presentation in 1955 at the Musée de l’Orangerie. These works include Un Bar aux Folies Bergère (1882) by Manet, La Jeune Femme se poudrant by Seurat (1889-90), Les Joueurs de cartes by Cézanne (1892-96), Autoportrait à l’oreille bandée by Van Gogh (1889), Nevermore by Gauguin (1897), as well as a set of ten watercolours by J.M.W. Turner which belonged to Samuel Courtauld’s brother, Sir Stephen Courtauld.

    The exhibition of the Courtauld Collection embodies the Fondation’s aim to showcase the role of emblematic collectors from the history of art, following on from previous exhibitions such as “Keys to a passion” (2014-2015), "Being Modern: MoMA in Paris" (2017-2018), "Icons of Modern Art. The Shchukin Collection" (2016-2017) which brought together great works of Modernism, collected by prestigious institutions and visionary collectors.

    The new 116 sqm space is dedicated to the House’s signature items and features a selection of leather goods, footwear and accessories for both men and women, including watches, jewellery, fragrance and Louis Vuitton City Guides. Clients are also able to personalise their favourite Louis Vuitton leather goods including products from the “My LV World Tour” and “Mon Monogram” collections with engraving and hot-stamping.

    The store’s concept is inspired by 1950’s Italian design. At the entrance, clients are greeted by a see-through façade with latticework that utilises the signature LV monogram of flowers and diamonds. This mesh combination alongside the muted tones and materials used, including champagne metals and ivory ceramics, seamlessly blends the store with the travelling world.

  • TRAVELLERS’ TALES

    Bags Unpacked: Pierre Le-Tan and Bertil Scali tell the stories of travellers around the world and reveal the secrets of their luggage.

    An irresistible collection of the most glamorous, worldly and discerning travellers’ tales. Who packed ‘a thousand absolutely necessary suitcases’? Who rediscovered his notes for a perennial bestseller in a trunk at the Paris Ritz? Whose trunk contained a bed?

    Here are around fifty intrepid travellers from the age of the steamer to the present: actors and heiresses, aristocrats and adventurers, rock stars, artists and fashion royalty, from Sarah Bernhardt to Sharon Stone, Tamara de Lempicka to Madonna, Paul Poiret to Karl Lagerfeld, Henri Matisse to Jeff Koons.

    Pierre Le-Tan’s portraits perfectly complement Bertil Scali’s witty, entertaining stories, which unpack the bags of the famous and their first-class lifestyles for all to enjoy.

    We could weave an invisible thread linking these artists, explorers and inventors whose paths often crossed, forming a kind of constellation, a cluster of life’s travellers, the aesthetes of travel.

    On the occasion of Paris Photo (November 8 to 11), Louis Vuitton invites you to discover its publications and pop-up bookstore located on the left-hand side of the Grand Palais stairway of honour.

    With its City Guide and Fashion Eye Series, Louis Vuitton explores photographic creation while celebrating the Art of Travel.

    Both mirroring trends and setting the standard, with great attention to cosmopolitan transformation, the Louis Vuitton City Guide has explored the most magnetic metropoles for nearly twenty years. Today, thirty cities are revealed through unexpected perspectives on fashion, design, well-being, contemporary art, gastronomy and culture. Original photographs illustrate the Louis Vuitton City Guide, a vision entrusted to the photography collective Tendance Floue, who reinforce the singular point of view represented in these tomes. Patrick Tourneboeuf is the author of the photographs featured in the 2019 Paris City Guide, as French photographer Françoise Huguier shares her favourite addresses this year. During Paris Photo, the digital version of the Paris City Guide is available for free on the App Store.

    With Fashion Eye - a series of photography books - Louis Vuitton evokes a city, a region or a country, seen through the eyes of a fashion photographer. Title after title, a broad compendium of perspectives emerges, one that shifts with the destinations, including urban panoramas and natural landscapes, scenes of local life, and more contemplative work. Fashion Eye creates an unprecedented dialogue between emerging talents, seasoned photographers and fashion photography legends.

    On November 9th and 10th, several photographs of the Fashion Eye series will sign their books at the Paris Photo x Louis Vuitton pop-up bookstore.
