Petit Palais

A real green light for the fine arts, the Petit Palais offer you a chronological visit in a remarkably renovated space.

It has a very fine collection of paintings, sculptures, furniture and works of art from antiquity until 1914.

Among its treasures are found an outstanding collection of Greek vases and a very important set of Flemish and Dutch paintings of the seventeenth century around the famous Rembrandt Self-Portrait with dog.

Its magnificent collection of French paintings from the eighteenth and nineteenth century features some major works. In the field of sculpture, the museum prides itself on some beautiful collections of Carpeaux, Carries and Dalou.

The decorative art collection is particularly extensive for the Renaissance and for the 1900 period, whether it be Gallé glassworks, Jewellery of Fouquet and Lalique, or the dining room designed by Guimard for his private mansion.

The museum finally features a beautiful graphic arts cabinet, notably with the complete series of engravings by Dürer, Rembrandt, Callot... and a rare collection of Nordic drawings.
