"David Hockney: Ma Normandie" at Galerie Lelong & Co.

Since the global pandemic encourages us to spend most of our time indoors, many of us are craving wide-open spaces and greenery. If that's you, David Hockney's virtual exhibition, "My Normandy" at Paris-based Galerie Lelong & Co should suit. It offers a stroll among the apple trees and timbered houses that the star British artist painted when he settled in the Normandy countryside in March 2019.

"David Hockney: Ma Normandie" is available on the Galerie Lelong & Co website and will welcome the public at the gallery's Paris premises when the health situation allows. Note that this virtual exhibition is also adapted to VR.

"From Renaissance to 20th century, French museums' masterpieces" at UMA

Sandro Botticelli, Tamara de Lempicka, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Vincent van Gogh, Berthe Morisot, Robert Delaunay…Who would have imagined that such diverse masters could one day be visible under the same (virtual) roof? The Universal Museum of Art partnered with CLIC France to put together this giant virtual exhibition. In total, 150 works by 100 artists are presented in 11 thematic galleries, from "ideal beauty" to "sensual bodies."

"De la Renaissance au XXe siècle, les chefs-d'oeuvre de la peinture dans les musées français" is on view on the Universal Museum of Art's website .

"The Advent of the Artist" at The Louvre

From craftsperson to artist, there is often just one step. This virtual exhibition from the Louvre showcases the progression of artists' career throughout the past centuries. This evolution is tackled following five themes: from signatures to self-portraits. A good way to admire Dürer, Rembrandt et Delacroix's self-portraits from the comfort of your home.
