Description

The Palais Brongniart plays host to the ‘Salon du dessin’ and invites the public to discover the collector’s world of drawing. This one-of-a-kind event in Paris unveils a wide selection of works on paper thanks to the presence of numerous French and foreign galleries.

Over 1,000 pieces highlight French and Italian schools … and present established and up-and-coming artists who make up the ‘new wave’ in this discipline, which has attracted renewed interest in recent years.

Running alongside the event is the ‘Semaine du dessin’ which offers a variety of exhibitions and free private visits at varied museums, institutions and libraries in the capital.

Palais Brongniart

It was built upon the orders of Napoleon and is named after the architect that designed it: Alexandre Théodore Brongniart.
Opened on 4 November 1826 by the Comte de Chabrol (the prefect of the Seine), it housed the Bourse de Paris (Paris stock exchange) for nearly one and a half centuries.
The Bourse de Paris has since moved. The famous trading floor, around which stokebrokers dealt with the largest values quoted on the stock exchange, was removed on 14 July 1987.
The Palais Brongniart houses a gallery devoted to the Bourse and its role in the economy. Architect: A. Brongniart.
Since 2008, the site can no longer be visited.
