It is said he brought the « power of the imagination to Europe ». Mainly thanks to his illustrations… Gustave Doré has illuminated a big part of the 19th century with black, verve and humour! Discover the « Doré » way of life thanks to the beautiful exhibition the Musée d'Orsay dedicated to him until June 5.
It is true that the Musée d'Orsay is a cult place for all those who love 19th century art in Paris. The former train station revisited as a museum was the ideal place to present this big exhibition about Gustave Doré (1832-1883), mainly celebrated for his incredible etchings of the works of Dante, Rabelais, Hugo or Balzac.
Original or imaginary. This time, in stead of just stopping at the illustrations that may have made the French artist famous, the exhibition meticulously reveals all the other sides of his work and his talents. From drawing to painting, from watercolour to sculpture. Often original or imaginary, the inspiration of Doré is expressed in all ranges of emotion!
No, Valentine’s Day is over! But Paris remains the city of love all year round, with a wide range of activities and events to experience as a couple. Like for instance the « Cinéma Paradiso » event, inviting you to watch cult movies in the nave of the Grand Palais until June 21, 2013.
No! You will not find a big exhibition in the nave of the Grand Palais this time, but an army of… Fiat 500s and sunbeds leaning against a gentle slope and facing a widescreen. From June 10 to 21, discover the pleasures of this giant Drive-In and find a fascinating billing of cult movies!
Cinema, games, dances. At the heart of this unique site of the Parisian heritage, you might be watching Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski, Grease, Taxi Driver or Annie Hall.
