Petit Palais

Situated on the Champs Elysées, not far from the River Seine, the Petit Palais presents a dazzling variety of artistic creations, placing the history of art in a spotlight for visitors to savour. The collection includes Renaissance masterpieces, a magnificent collection of antiques, Orthodox icons from the East, romantic paintings, and a host of Flemish and Dutch masterpieces. It offers a wonderful window into the way that art has absorbed multiple influences, incorporating themes from distant civilisations, ancient myths and the great world religions. And it celebrates this diversity in spectacular fashion, with its sculptures, paintings, tapestries and ornaments. All-in-all, the Petit Palais is home to almost 1,500 works from some of the great names in art history. From Monet, Rodin and Degas to Cézanne, Rubens, Rembrandt and Corot, the Palais offers a fabulous array of artistic treasures, and nobody who enters the exhibition halls is destined to leave disappointed.

Art isn't the only attraction at the Petit Palais. The exhibition halls themselves were designed according to a trapezoidal layout, and are spread across four separate buildings. Each one is graced with magnificent decor, creating an opulent atmosphere for the works on display. They are perfectly complemented by the beautiful gardens arranged around the museum's entrance. It truly is the ideal setting for some of the world's great masterpieces.

Organised with the help of London's Tate Britain, this exhibition traces the journey of French artists who travelled to London following the Franco-Prussian war in 1870 and the defeat of the Paris Commune in 1871. It includes over 100 paintings from across the English Channel, and includes works by Tissot, Pissarro, Daubigny, Money, Sisley, Derain and Carpeau. The collection provides a unique set of perspectives of Victorian London, from the royal family to urban street scenes, to pastoral images of the English countryside and the River Thames.
