Exhibition: Jardins

From March 15th to July 24th 2017, the Grand Palais pays tribute to the gardens in painting. Matisse, Cézanne, Klimt, Fragonard, Picasso and even Monet, all of them painted gardens. The exhibition “Jardins” echoes to a famous quote of Foucault: “Le Jardin, c’est la plus petite parcelle du monde et puis c’est la totalité du monde” (“A garden is the smallest patch of the world but then also the entirety of the world”). Six centuries of creation are here together, from the Renaissance to nowadays, and unveil some of the main master pieces of the art history. Visitors can thus wander in a poetic scenography, following the photographs, the drawings, the paintings, the sculptures, the installations and the sound and olfactory environment. A retrospective to discover just a few metro stations away only from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni, to celebrate the arrival of spring on next Monday, 20th March.

Nocturnal on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday until 10p.m.
