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 in 1815 to the revolution of 1848.
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.
Exhibition organised thanks to the patronage of Plastic Omnium, and with the support of Barclays. This exhibition carried out in cooperation with Musée Carnavalet Histoire de Paris, Musée de la vie romantique and the Musée des arts décoratifs.
During the exhibition we can discover some paintings like :
Luca Giordano, the grand master of Neapolitan painting in the seventeenth century, was a disciple of the painter José de Ribera, whose Tenebrist genius he reflected. However, his training, which took him from Rome to Florence and especially to Venice, also exposed him to Veronese’s great Baroque decorative style and colors. This solid heritage brought him glory in Europe, and, like Rubens, he was invited to the Spanish court. For the first time in France, the Petit Palais presents a retrospective dedicated to this painter of Neapolitan Baroque.
