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!
This year, Mother’s Day takes place on May 25 in France. Even though you have probably not waited for this date to come and share lovely moments, it would be an idea to celebrate Mother’s Day in Paris! When staying at the Opéra Cadet, thousands of suggestions for outings are waiting for you…
Our team can always recommend a florist or a chocolate maker that will make you swoon… Paris is full of it. But why not celebrate the most beautiful Mum (yours) with an original night out near the hotel Opéra Cadet?
Ballet, theatre… Why not go to the Comédie Française, located nearby? The Misanthrope, Andromaque or A Dream Play are still on the bill in May… - http://www.comedie-francaise.fr/. And if your dear Mum just loves dancing, think about the ballets of the Opéra. http://www.operadeparis.fr/saison-2014-2015/ballet
