The Grand Palais in Paris is the iconic monument of the Rmn-GP, where we showcase our biggest exhibitions to best advantage in its vast spaces. We also host events organized by others, such as FIAC, Paris Photo, catwalk shows during Fashion Week, the Saut Hermes equestrian event, etc. Culture is represented here in all its forms, attracting over 2 million people each year.

This is the first time that Paris has hosted a major retrospective of this memorable artist who was the court painter of Marie Antoinette and her family but also painted nobility in Italy, Austria, Russia and elsewhere during her 12 year hiatus at the time of the Revolution. The exhibit is beautifully constructed with the narrative in her own words... More

Predictably, she fled Paris in 1789 but continued her craft in many other... More
