Romantic Paris 1815-1848 - Exhibition catalogue
From the fall of Napoleon to the 1848 revolution, Paris, refusing any retreat into identity, established itself as the cultural crossroads of Europe.
This book presents the extraordinary artistic abundance that animated Paris during this period. Despite political uncertainties, the capital married literary Anglophilia as well as clothing, was passionate about Spain, supported the Greek cause and cried for Poland, and discovered Germany without giving up Italian opera. It attracts Rossini as well as Liszt and Chopin, enjoys literary battles and is dazzled by luxury and refinement.
Exhibition at the Petit Palais at the musée de la Vie romantique from 22 May to 15 September 2019
