The Sea in Paris, 45 Million Years Ago

This fascinating exhibit curated in the depths of the Paris Catacombs reveals a little known fact about the city of light: 45 million years ago, the area was part of a vast tropical sea ecosystem; its traces can be observed in the geological formations of Paris' many underground "layers". Anyone interested in natural history and geology shouldn't miss this one.

Goya, Inventor of Modernity - Pinacotheque de Paris

This exhibit at the exhibition space known as the Pinacotheque, located near the Paris Opera district, commemorates the singular eye and strange but compelling vision of Spanish artist Francisco de Goya. His somber scenes and portraits are haunting, if sometimes slightly disturbing. A fascinating look at one of Spain's great painters. Through March 16th, 2014.
