Paris Art Calendar: The 20 hottest exhibitions opening this fall

It has been a very difficult year for the French capital due to last autumn's attacks but the new exhibitions' programme for the fall-2016 has an air of optimism and a sense of a new beginning as all major museums in the city have scheduled a number of spectacular exhibitions, due to open in the next two months.
