The Champs-Elysees Avenue Paris
The most beautiful avenue in the world.
It’s not the widest or the longest avenue in the world, but almost everyone agrees that it’s certainly the most beautiful avenue in the world… and one of the most expensive too, for businesses. Famous brand names fights relentlessly to have their own space there, and the selection process is ruthless (H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch and Dolce & Gabbana).
But there’s more to ‘Les Champs’ (as Parisians call the Champs-Elysees like that) than just shopping – although here you can do it in amazing style. With its wide leafy pavements, numerous cafés, bar, restaurant and cinemas and the most amazing view from the Arc de Triomphe straight down to the Place de la Concorde, the Champs Elysées is luxurious and stunning like nowhere else in the world. And don’t forget that nearby there are all the restaurants you could ask for, bars, nightlife and the Lido.
It’s also one of the city’s most popular meeting spots and often used for popular events. The Bastille parade that marches down it on 14th July is always impressive, it’s the venue for the last leg of the Tour de France and New Year’s Eve there is a rowdy but good-natured night with almost everyone holding a bottle of champagne!
Basically, if you visit Paris and miss the Champs Elysees, you haven’t really seen Paris…

Paintings and Watercolours
Félix Ziem (1821-1911) was a French painter in the style of the Barbizon School.
Ziem's works were first exhibited in 1849 in Paris and Ziem remained a regular exhibitor there for many years. He also traveled extensively throughout Europe and in 1860 moved to Montmartre, the artistic quarter of the city of Paris.
An extensive traveller, friend of the Barbizon school of artists, Ziem played a unique part in the 19th century art world. He managed to attract a wide range of patrons through works that conjured up dreams of Venice and Constantinople.
The Petit Palais is presenting a selection of paintings and drawings acquired by the museum. At the end of his life, concerned with his legacy, Ziem had put aside a significant body of worki. The Ziem donation is made up of 171 paintings and watercolours with five additional sketchbooks and one ink drawing. This selection – mainly sketches from Ziem's studio collection – reveals a more intimate aspect of the artist, whose excessive output ultimately compromised his spontaneity.
