The 1900 World’s Fair celebrated talking films, escalators, and the largest refracting telescope of the time. Le Petit Palais was built to host an exhibit on French art during the Fair, but the pavilion is mostly remembered for its Art Nouveau style and design. Here, you’ll notice blooming flowers and curving stems seemingly emerge from the stone and metal work of its architecture. Today, it is known as the City of Paris’ Museum of Fine Arts. Stand before the major works of French Master Painters: Cézanne, Delacroix, Gauguin, Monet, Rembrandt, Toulouse-Lautrec—the impressive roster goes on at Le Petit Palais!
