Delacroix At the Louvre and Les Hollandais à Paris At the Petit Palais, Two Exhibitions Not to Be Missed

Useful information, tips, and good deals

These are the exhibitions currently on everyone's mind in Paris, both very deserving of a visit. Le Relais Madeleine will give you its opinion and some useful tips to simplify your visit.

Delacroix, 1798-1863 At the Louvre from March 29 to July 23, 2018

The Louvre, the most visited museum in the world, has not been mentioned for quite some time. With 60,000 m² of galleries and 35,000 works, it would take 36 consecutive visiting days to see everything, with only 30 seconds to see each work for 8 hours a day. In other words, it is better to prepare your visit ahead of time. Before introducing you to the Delacroix exhibition, we think it best to give you some tips.

3 Tips to Make the Most of Your Visit to The Louvre


The Barque of Dante - Eugène Delacroix, 1822

The price of the single ticket (permanent and temporary collection) is 17 € and the best solution is to buy it online on the Louvre website as you will now have to book time slots. The price at the counters is €15, but this means waiting in long lines.
Knowing the museum's busy hours will help you better enjoy your visit. It is better to come:

  • At 9 am
  • During the week
  • On nice days
  • After 4:30 pm and even better at night (until 10 pm on Wednesdays and Fridays)

Finally, avoid entering through the pyramid as there are frequently queues. Instead, use the Carrousel shopping center at 99 rue de Rivoli, which is faster and more fluid.

The Delacroix Exhibition

It has been 54 years since the last retrospective exhibition in France devoted to perhaps the most emblematic painter of French culture, probably thanks to his painting "Liberty Leading the People".
The Louvre, which holds the world's largest collection of Delacroix's works, has consolidated its collection of pieces from around the world. This retrospective exhibition of the river painter presents 180 works, a majority of which are paintings.
The exhibition showcases the diversity of the painter's style as well as his innovation and his sense of mise en scene.

Liberty Leading the People - Eugène Delacroix, 1830. This painting illustrates the " Three Glorious Days ", the French revolutionary uprising of 1830. 

The Pyramidal composition of "Liberty Guiding the People" is inspired by his friend Géricault's painting "The Raft of the Medusa", as he also places a naked corpse in the foreground. It is believed that Delacroix modeled for The Raft of the Medusa. It is also believed that the little boy holding up a pistol inspired Gavroche in Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, published in 1862.

Noces juives au Maroc (Jewish wedding in Morocco) – Eugène Delacroix, 1841. 

A month after his arrival in Morocco in 1832, Eugène Delacroix was ​​invited to a wedding. The event inspired the painter's work "Noces juives au Maroc" almost 10 years later. For Eugène Delacroix, Morocco was a revelation of color, light, and a way of life.

Les Hollandais à Paris At the Petit Palais from February 6 to May 13, 2018

The Petit Palais contains the collections of the fine arts of the city of Paris. Built on the occasion of the 1900 World's Fair, it offers a double interest: In addition to the quality of the collections and temporary exhibitions, the architecture, with its glass roofs, cupolas, and large windows was designed to bathe the space in natural light.

You must visit the interior garden, whose renovation has been most successful. Rather unknown to tourists, and even Parisians, this place is particularly pleasant during the beautiful season.

You will find useful information on peak periods, ticket prices, ordering online, and conference visits, on the page " Prepare your visit " on the Petit Palais website.
For information on access, times, night visits, see the museum's " Basic information " page.

PETIT PALAIS
Avenue Winston Churchill, 75008 Paris

Les Hollandais à Paris (The Dutch in Paris), 1789-1914. Van Gogh, Van Dongen, Mondrian...

After the French revolution of 1789 and before the first world war, more than a thousand Dutch artists went to Paris, attracted by its artistic dynamism. The exhibition shows how the links between Dutch and French artists had an influence on their paintings. Exchanges, influences, and mutual enrichment are staged through 9 figures of Dutch painters: From Gérard van Spaendonck to Piet Mondrian to George Breitner, Vincent van Gogh, and others, the artists' works are presented alongside those of their contemporaries such as Géricault, David, Corot, Millet, Picasso, highlighting common traits.

The Dutch impressionist George Hendrik Breitner was inspired by French painting. He gave up the clear hues of his peers' paintings and adopted more expressive and contrasting shades, typical of Rembrandt's work, using a Rembrandt range. From 1893, Breitner asserted his personality through his paintings, as can be seen in his series of girls in kimonos, which is very far from Dutch tradition.
 
The exhibition is convincing and enriching in its choice of painters and works presented as well as because it offers a different point of view on painting.
Enjoy your visit!
