Behind the hustle and bustle of the Champs Elysées and facing the long queues of the Grand Palais is this peaceful little gem. I recently came across the Petit Palais while sheltering from the cold as I waited for a friend to attend an exhibition at its big brother, the Grand Palais, but there really isn’t anything petit about this gallery.
A rather excited young ladyNotable artists whose works of art are housed at the Petit Palais include Monet, Renoir, Morisot, Bonnard, Corot, Ingres, Delacroix… Shall I continue? Courbet, Manet, Gaugain and Rembrandt (but to name a few).
So, why don’t you check out the Petit Palais the next time you decide to spend forever queuing up for the Grand Palais. See opening dates/times and alternating exhibitions on their website by clicking here.
