Exeter Goes to Paris for the Morozov Impressionist Collection

Sail down the beautiful rivers
Sail down the beautiful rivers

For the first time since 1917, the entire Morozov Impressionist art collection has been brought together in one space for a truly historic exhibition. We have created this five-day trip to Paris to highlight this once-in-a-lifetime show with plenty of added adventures. We will take our travelers behind the scenes to experience the LV Foundation and the Morozov Collection the Exeter way, including early entrance before all other visitors step foot inside.

The five days in Paris will be hosted by our Founder, Greg Tepper, who will bring added insights to the Morozov Collection from the Russian perspective.

Our home in Paris for four nights will be the opulent Hôtel de Crillon, recently restored to its palatial grandeur. We will visit the Louvre with a top curator from the world-famous museum to give us privileged insights not available to the public. We will also see the new Bourse de Commerce Pinault contemporary art museum, opened only in May of this year.

French patisserie is world-renowned so we will even take some time to learn the finer points of creating our own croissants with a Parisienne pastry chef!

Forbes calls it a 'once-in-a-lifetime exhibit'.

The New York Times says 'Just get your vaccine passport and go!'

This morning we will head to the new Bourse de Commerce Museum (opened May, 2021), created by FrancoisHenri Pinault to showcase his personal contemporary art collection, along with temporary exhibitions brought
to Paris. The Pinault Collection consists of over 10,000 works of art and almost 400 artists ranging from wellknown names to up and coming artists. This amazing museum is not to be missed! Our visit to the collection will be led by a curator from the museum, leaving some time for personal exploration.

Extraordinary Experience
This afternoon we will be invited into the world-famous Louvre Museum for a curator-led VIP tour of the collection. While most have visited the Louvre, few have been able to experience the museum with a curator who knows every inch of the museum and will provide insights rarely provided. You’ll have time to explore on your own after this tour.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Day 3
Morozov Collection |

January 15, 2022 | Paris

Extraordinary Experience
This morning we will meet for a VIP Early Entrance at the LV Foundation for the Morozov Collection Exhibition. The Foundation Louis Vuitton building is a work of art on its own. Designed by Frank Gehry, it is situated in the famed Bois de Boulogne, Paris’s largest park. The foundation supports French and international contemporary art and aims to make it accessible to the public. The Morozov Collection was created by two Russian brothers who along with Sergei Shchukin, helped usher in the era of great art collectors featuring Impressionists. They commissioned works for their Moscow mansions which are now world-famous and their friendships with artists such as Denis, Matisse and others, helped the careers of these famous artists when they were not nearly as known as they are today. After the Russian
Revolution their collections were nationalized and combined and then finally separated into three museums in Russia: the Pushkin Gallery in Moscow, the Tretyakov Museum in Moscow and the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. Never before have the original Morozov paintings been reassembled into the collection created by these brothers. The Morozov Collection is in Paris for just a few months and the exhibition ends on February 22, 2022 when the entire collection is sent back to Russia and to the three separate museums. Lunch will be enjoyed at the LV Foundation.

This afternoon will be left for us to explore Paris on our own.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Croissant Class |

January 16, 2022 | Paris

Extraordinary Experience
Today we will delve into the quintessential experience of French cuisine when we meet one of the finest pastry chefs of the city for a fun and delicious class to make le croissant, the decadent flaky and buttery icon of the French petit-dejeuner. This morning, our chef will guide us into mastering the croissant from start to finish: from the creation of the pâte feuilletée levée, to kneading and folding our way to a technically impressive pastry. After we’ve learned the basics, our chef will guide through the making that mainstay of French pastry – crème patissier. We’ll take our goodies home for a warm, buttery snack later. This afternoon we will have free time before we get together for dinner at a local supper club. Tonight we will experience one of the most enchanting evenings in Paris, the Brasserie and Music Hall in a historic venue founded in 1922.
