Palais de la Découverte

Share This

Originally part of the Grand Palais, but now cut off from the main nave, the Palais de la Découverte is a science museum founded as late as 1937 for the Universal Exposition that year. Although it should have been closed just afterwards, the museum remained open, trying to show actual scientific experiments being made in the hope of spurring young adults into deciding a career in science. Whether or not it succeeded is difficult to say, but the the slightly austere nature of the place had been gradually softened, no doubt assisted by the success of the (much more fun) Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie at La Villette. Still seen as a bit intense or fuddy duddy, the museum keeps a mostly educative role, suffering from a slight inferiority complex compared to La Villette. We think that the building is well worth visiting, and although the very young might find the place daunting and dull, young adults (and trainee nerds) will find much to interest them here.

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.
