From March 21 through July 16, 2017, the Petit Palais art museum puts on display a new temporary exhibition “Baroque during the Enlightenment”.
Dedicated to the 18th-century masterpieces in Paris churches, the exhibition showcases different sketches as well as valuable religious paintings which were created between the Régence period and the French Revolution.
Among the displayed pieces, attendees can find paintings by Largillière and Restout added to others by Lemoine, Van Loo, Vien and David.
“Baroque during the Enlightenment” is one of the best exhibitions in Paris that you really should not miss if you’re staying at the Hotel Louvre Marsollier Opera Paris between March 21 and July 16, especially if you are a fan of the 18th-century art in France.
