“Allées et venues”: The cultural visit in Andorra that you cannot miss

After “Scenarios. From Monet to Estes. From Trouville to New York “, the Carmen Thyssen Museum Andorra seeks once again to offer us the opportunity to see in first person great works of art from the hand of artists such as Gauguin or Pissarro.
Now we will present you all the details of “Allées et venues”, the new museum exhibition that will be available until September the 10th.

A common theme
As with the previous collection, the paintings have not been chosen randomly, but are linked by the same theme: the roads.
Although they may seem like a simple tool to give depth to the painting or an element of a landscape that the artist has wanted to represent without any other objective, the roads are much more than that. They are places of inspiration, of pictorial and personal evolution, of beauty, of discovery…

“Allées et venues”
Among the works exhibited in the room, one stands out the one that gives its name to the exhibition: “Allées et venues” (goings and comings) of Gauguin. This painting is one of those that the author created in his trip through the Caribbean, during which his technique and artistic vision evolved.
In addition, being able to see this work in person is an opportunity that you cannot miss, since its transportation is so delicate and complicated, it is not usually displayed.

A point of interest
With just one year of live, the Carmen Thyssen Museum Andorra has become one of the great points of interest in the country, an almost obligatory visit if you come to the country of the Pyrenees. Its modern facilities integrated into the emblematic building of the Hotel Valira, its activities for both adults and children in the EduCarmenThyssen space and the excellent selection of paintings will make the visit to the museum an experience that will not leave you indifferent.

On your next trip to our small country, or if you are on holiday to the principality, don’t forget to visit the Carmen Thyssen Andorra Museum, open from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
