Paris 1900, La Ville Spectacle  will showcase paintings,  photographs, sculpture, films and posters from the era, with works by Cézanne,  Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec,  Rodin, Mucha, Lalique and others.

There will also be  a display of jewellery and dresses from the period, which many regard as being the height of Parisian chic, style and art.

The Petit Palais was built as a Museum/Gallery for the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1900. Situated just off the Champs-Élysées it is a very appropriate venue for such an exhibition!
