The « Doré » way of life in Paris

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!

You would almost think you'd be in Patagonia, in the Sahel or in Sudan. But you are staying at the Hotel Opéra Cadet, at the heart of Paris! You'll be meeting with Adeline, but she is not just a normal Parisian. She's a girafe. And with her thousands of furred, feathered or scaled friends, she will welcome you this summer at the new Zoo of Paris, in Vincennes. 

You'll be at about ten minutes by metro from your hotel. This is where Adeline is waiting for you. Of course, you'll be meeting this long necked Parisian, but that's not all. 

Feathers and fur! Lions, pumas, rhinoceros, sea lions… In the five « biozones », you'll explore the diversity of the world of animals and you'll be made aware of the relationships between man and nature. In the shade of this jungle, in the sand and the rocky ground of this desert zone, you'll find a true exploration of the animal reign in Paris! http://www.parczoologiquedeparis.fr/fr

Putting on tights, wearing a cape with your initials, a masque… A couple of things that seem difficult to realise at work… Except for the superheroes and supervillians of the Marvel Comics made in America. A Parisian exhibition pays tribute to the art of illustrating the powers of Hulk, Spider-Man and other Silver Surfers. To be visited at the musée des Arts Ludiques until August 31.

During your stay at the Opéra Cadet, you can meet with (graphical) icons! They’ve come from far away during your childhood and highlight the creative originality of major Marvel authors like Stan Lee, Joe Simon, Don Heck or Neal Adams…

Get into my comic book! It mustn’t have been easy to invent a way to illustrate the super powers of Iron Man, Captain America, Batman, Spider-Man etc. Along the 300 odd original drawing boards from the mythical publications, the Great Art of Marvel Superheroes shows a complete aesthetical collection at the service of a very original fiction!  http://artludique.com/marvel.html

Before him, Rome wasn’t entirely the centre of the world yet. Before him, the word ‘imperator’ didn’t mean Emperor yet. Indeed, Augustus is one of the men who changed the face of the Antique World. And two thousand years later, Paris sees to adding a few laurels to his. Thanks to the Grand Palais and the Musée du Louvre, until July 13.

Often, people talk about his reign like a golden age. It is true that the great man the exhibition I, Augustus unwinds is not only the founder of what is later called the Roman Empire, but he is also the first prince of a Roman civilisation that seems to be at its climax.

The golden century. Statues with sculpted reliefs and frescos with exceptional reconstructions of villas. It all shows the Roman wealth and the power of the Antique Italy on the western world. Augustus, first emperor of the Roman Empire, also kept his fame thanks to the great writers of his century such as Virgil, Horace, Livy and Ovid.

Before becoming Republican, France was royal, and even imperial. One Empress has even become the French favourite for her modernity and sense of beauty. Coming spring, the small but endearing Musée du Luxembourg pays tribute to Joséphine, wife of Napoléon 1st and Empress. Enough imperial reasons to rediscover this Parisian museum.
Obviously, there will be souvenirs of the woman Joséphine was. But also of the wife she was, and of her private life with the Emperor. Naturally, you’ll find souvenirs of the sovereign, but also of the patron of arts and inspirer of fashion she was. Until June 29, items, documents but also art works will enlighten the portrait of this major figure of French history.
As a Creole, great traveller and modern woman, Joséphine loved art in all its forms. You’ll not be surprised to find famous art works and splendid illustrations with her influence on the history of art and styles during the consular and imperial period.
