The basement of what used to be a slightly dingy arcade of shops has been transformed into a huge record and DVD store by the oldest and biggest multimedia chain in France: FNAC (which stands for "Fédération nationale d'achats", although no-one would know).
You'll find a large selection of CDs, video games DVDs and Blu-ray here as well as some vinyl - currently making a comeback - and hi-tech goods.
It may not be as large as their other stores in Les Halles or Montparnasse (or the four others in Paris), but most music/movie lovers will find what they need here, and usually a little cheaper than the nearby Virgin Megastore.
Being one of the most fascinating and challenging painting techniques, the technique of pastel was actually very popular and fashionable among the 19th - century artists. French artists, like Edgar Degas, for instance, innovated this technique and employed it with an almost expressionist spirit, making it his primary medium to create some of the finest pieces of art.
Today, the Petit Palais des Champs Elysées Paris gives you an unparalleled chance to see a large body of works made with pastels and which have rarely been shown.
Over 150 pieces out of the museum’s collection which holds around two hundred masterpieces await you. So, don’t miss this outstanding opportunity to discover them.
From Renoir to Gauguin to Degas, many iconic artists are present through their works.
"The art of the pastel of Degas to Redon" started from September 15th, 2017, and will last until April 8th, 2018. So, consider visiting the art museum of the Petit Palais.
