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!
From January 8 to February 11, the fashion fever takes over Paris with the winter sales. So book your stay at the Opéra Cadet, ideally situated in Paris, and visit the chic and cult places as well as the addresses nearby, allowing you to be efficient in your search for good deals. Here’s some advice:
Start with the cult places! To get plenty of good deals, without forgetting the Parisian chic, start your exploration of the sales in Paris… by taking the escalators. The ones of the famous department stores and fashion places around the Gare Saint-Lazare, close to the Opéra-Cadet.
Heart of sales. Then, go for a fashion meeting at the ‘passage du Havre’. Here, forty odd boutiques and stores await you under an elegant glass roof. Make a stop on the traditional Champs-Elysées as well as the avenue Montaigne before visiting the avenue d’Opéra to get some good deals in the carrousel of the Louvre!
