Essentially a giant advertisement for the Alsace region of France (and why not?), the Maison de l'Alsace has its own restaurant, and it's open 24 hours a day! Handy if you're catching a late movie or show... or emerging from a chic nightclub at ridiculous o'clock.
Don't expect anything modern here: the tone is most definitely theme park France, with heavy decoration and standard dishes that have survived the test of time.
Why no try some of the Alsace wie while you're there? Should take your mind off the silly décor for a while...
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.
