Romantic Paris, 1815-1848

22 May 2019 15 September 2019
This large-scale exhibition plunges us into the effervescence of Paris in the romantic era. After Paris 1900: La Ville Spectacle, the Petit Palais is presenting Romantic Paris, a further episode in its overview of the great periods that have shaped the city's identity. This is both an exhibition and a cultural event : a sweeping panorama of the French capital during the Romantic years from the fall of Napoleon...

Over 600 works - paintings, sculptures, costumes, objets d'art, furniture - plunge the visitor into the artistic, cultural and political ferment of the time. The exhibition's immersive design takes the form of a tour of the period's emblematic Paris sites : the Tuileries, the Palais-Royal, the Nouvelle Athènes quarter, Victor Hugo's Notre-Dame, and the Grand Boulevards and their theatres. At the same time an additional segment at the Musée de la Vie Romantique rounds off the exhibition with a look at the city's literary and high-society salons.
