I saw a poster in the Abbesses Metro tunnel that a 1900 Paris exhibit was happening at the Petit Palais and this sounded like a good fit for a rainy day! So off I went!
Walking up to the Petit Palais!
Checking out the current exhibit signage!
Great, a two for one, Carl Larsson exhibit going on at the same time! Dig that artwork in the background on the Pont Alexandre III.
Waiting in line in front of the Petit Palais!
Entry into Paris 1900…
First stop, the beautifully designed Hector Guimard’s original Art Nouveau entrance for the Paris Metros!
The fashion of the 1900’s.
Now those are rockin’ shoes!
Can’t go out without a beautiful hair pick!
What a century!
Can’t have an exhibit without a little Toulouse!
Or miss a Monet!
And don’t forget those Renoir’s!
My great-great grandmother would have looked stunning in this dress!
Wall mural depicting life in the early 1900s!
How about an Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec workbook!
Every master bedroom parlor should have one of these! Translation of sign, “Armchair called voluptuous or love of the Prince of Wales”
I just love marble stairs, what an exhibit and exit!
