Issued on: Modified:
FRANCE 24's journalists meet a man considered a pioneer of Ghanaian photography and one of the most important visual artists of the last century. Although he had been a photographer for decades, James Barnor was in his late 70s when he gained recognition for his work. He celebrated his 90th birthday this year. Among the places that display his photos are Paris's Quai Branly museum and the Nubuke foundation in Ghana.
Also on the show, we discover Paris's immersive exhibition of stunning artworks made of light. "Van Gogh, Starry Night" is on at the Atelier des Lumières.
We also check out a retrospective of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, famed for his portrayal of Paris's cafes, brothels and cabarets at the end of the 19th century.
And Paris's Luxembourg museum is celebrating the great artists of the golden age of English painting, including Gainsborough, Reynolds and Turner.
