We have Louis XV to thank for the Sea Museum; its collection was initially made up from a collection given to the king. If you like model boats, you'll be very happy here, but there's a lot more to see, with uniforms, paintings, ancient navigating equipment... almost anything related to ships in fact, including ships themselves: the imperial dinghy of Napoleon I dating from 1810 is here, as is the prow from Marie-Antoinette's pleasure boat (dating from 1777).

The art of Pastel from Degas to RedonThe 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.
