Exhibition: Balzac et les artistes, entre mythe et réalité
For its new exhibition, the Maison de Balzac is displaying more than 150 works, among which some have never been unveiled to the general public, all from the museum’s collection. We discover the night worker that Balzac was but also how this writer was shaped both by his time and his contemporaries. Thus, these are sculptures, paintings, drawings but also furniture which are here displayed, such as the little wooden table on which he wrote “The Human Comedy”. Visitors will also be able to admire caricatures drawn by Henri Monnier or recent portraits created by Enrico Baj or Eduardo Arroyo. Named “Balzac et les artistes. Entre mythe et réalité”, this very beautiful retrospective is to go all over just nearby the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.

Open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
