Jeu de Paume

Share This

Actually called the 'Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume' if you please, this grand but squat building set in the Tuileries Gardens, close to the Place de la Concorde and opposite the Orangerie is now an exhibition space for contemporary photography.

The building dates from 1861 when it was used for the precursor of tennis, called “jeu de paume” as it was initially played with one's palm rather than a raquet. 50 years later the running of the building became loosely attached to the Louvre, and until the opening of the Musée d'Orsay just across the river it exposed mostly impressionist works.

Entirely renovated at the beginning of the 1990s, it is now dedicated exclusively to photography and video exhibitions, with a sister site in the Marais area – the Hôtel de Sully – for more historical work.

Many big names have exposed recently, such as Cindy Sherman and Pierre & Gilles, and a large Martin Parr retrospective is planned for summer 2009.

The art of Pastel from Degas to Redon

The Collection of the Petit Palais

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.
