Romantic Paris (1815-1848)

This major exhibition plunges into the effervescence of Paris during the Romantic epoch.

From the fall of Napoleon to the French Revolution of 1848, Paris was the cultural crossroads of Europe.

The capital furiously adopted English-style clothing and literature, was passionate about Spain and the Greek cause and discovered Germany, without, however, forgetting Italian opera.

Paris attracted Rossini, Liszt and Chopin, delighted in literary battles and swirled with luxury and refinement.


Through exceptional loans and a spectacular scenography, the exhibition includes fashion and dance along with Berlioz and Delacroix.

It is presented as a stroll through the important sites of Romanticism in Paris, from the Palais Royal to La Nouvelle Athènes, from the Comédie Française to the Grands Boulevards.
