Description

Discover the enchanting new works of artist Jean-Michel Othoniel at the Petit Palais. Carefully placed and sometimes half-hidden, they form a dialogue with the Petit Palais’s magnificent architecture and gardens. With these more than 70 new works, Othoniel has invented The Narcissus Theorem, about a man-flower who, in reflecting himself, reflects the world around him. Entry to the exhibition is free of charge. Not to be missed!

Petit Palais - Musée des Beaux-Arts de la ville de Paris

Located between the Seine and the Champs-Élysées, the Petit Palais is part of an exceptional monumental environment. Architectural jewel built by Charles Girault for the 1900 Paris Exposition with the Grand Palais and the Pont Alexandre III, the Petit Palais became in 1902 the museum of fine arts to house the rich collections of the City of Paris. The collections offer a wide artistic panorama, from Antiquity to the beginning of the 20th century. A true haven of peace, its interior garden welcomes visitors and allows them to take a pleasant break.
