Experience the splendor of the French capital at the turn of the twentieth century. Organized by the Petit Palais Museum of Fine Arts with additional loans from other institutions in the City of Paris Museums, this exhibition presents more than 200 works of art made at the turn of the century in this vibrant and rapidly changing city.In the spirit of the landmark International Exposition of 1900 that transformed the city and drew 51 million visitors, Paris 1900: City of Entertainment will introduce the American public to the Belle Epoque ("Beautiful Era") of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, a period known for fantasy, excess and boundless faith in progress through technology and design. The period also gave rise to forms of entertainment that remain vital today such as cabaret, cinema and even the bicycle.Paintings and prints by Pierre-Auguste Renior, Camille Pissarro and Henri do Toulouse-Lautrec will join sculptures by Auguste Rodin, Antoine Bourdelle and Camille Claudel. Sarah Bernhardt's dual legacy as artist and actress is explored, alongside a rare suite of Art Nouveau furniture and celebrated examples of art pottery and glass.
