Fall means a fresh line-up of temporary art expos in Paris. Here are 3 shows not to miss.

• Are you a fan of the Beats and the poets and painters who inspired them? Centre Pompidou has a terrific show, through October 3, tracing their travels from 1943-69, culminating in their Paris sojourn.

Musée du Luxembourg, a small museum located in the French Senate building, in the Luxembourg Palace, hosts two shows a year – and these are some of the best expos in Paris. The current temporary show, ” Henri Fantin- Latour. À fleur de peau,” organized by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux in collaboration with the Musée d’Orsay, looks at the French artist’s creative process. Advance purchase tickets recommended. Sept 14 – Feb 12.

• Musée Jacquemart-André, one of Paris’ lesser known museums, has been beautifully restored, from its neoclassical facade to its unusual winter garden, grand staircase, and elegant private apartments. The temporary show, “Rembrandt,” looks at 3 periods in the artist’s life: his early work, his portraits in Amsterdam, and his later life. Sept 16-Jan 23, advance purchase tickets recommended.
