Vincenzo Gemito (1852-1929)
Now on - Jan 26, 2020

Vincenzo Gemito had already sculpted one of his most famous pieces by the time he was 16 years old. Adopted by an artisan and enrolled into the Naples Academy of Fine Arts by the time he was 12, Gemito was destined to use his hands to create great things.

For the first time in France, Gemito's works – from portraits of celebrities of the time to masterful sculptures that caught the spirit of his native Naples – are getting a deserved display.

Luca Giordano (1634-1705)
Now on - Feb 23, 2020

Known for the prolific speed at which he worked in during the late 17th century, Luca Giordano painted frescoes in Florence (notably for the Medici family) and religious scenes for King Charles II of Spain.

Giordano's Baroque style was an amalgamation of his time studying in Venice and Rome. His pieces would prove to be influential throughout the 18th century and served as a precursor to the later Rococo movement. For the first time, the Petit Palais is presenting a retrospective of Giordano's work on French soil.

The Petit Palais is not a "Paris secret" but should be on the list of top places to visit, especially if you want to be in a less crowded museum. The place is well organized and there is a lot to see (paintings, sculpture). It also has a nice cafe at the courtyard, where you can take a break while enjoying a coffee or snack. I spent about 3 hrs there; found it to be a great way to start my visit to Paris. From there one can walk to Champs Elysees and L'Arc du Thriomphe. Getting the ticket online allowed me to skip the purchase line and save time (just show your ticket on your cell phone); security check was quick.

The French romantics is a very good exhibition. However it is long and very detailed so to enjoy the exhibition I would recommend a break in the middle. the cafe at petit palais is exceptional with a good cake selection and value formulae lunches
