Carambolages, which is on at the Grand Palais in Paris until 4 July 2016, is one of the most refreshing art exhibitions I have seen in a long time.
I finally had a chance to visit the Musée Picasso, which reopened in October 2014 after a five-year renovation.
I didn't like the building when I first visited the museum, back in 2006, and I still don't like it now, but the collection is outstanding.
