Paris 1900: City of Entertainment | Oct 12-Jan 6
Frist Art Museum
Fri, Oct 12 10:00 am
This exhibition will allow audiences to relive the splendor of the French capital at the time of the Paris Exposition Universelle, when it heralded the arrival of the 20th century. More than ever before, Paris was seen throughout the world as a sparkling city of luxury with a sophisticated way of life. More than 250 worksâ€”paintings, decorative art, costumes, posters, photographs, jewelry, and sculptures, mainly kept by the Paris city museumsâ€”will immerse visitors in the atmosphere of Belle Ã‰poque Paris. They will be presented in six groupings: Paris, Showcase of the World; Art Nouveau; Paris, Capital of the Arts; The Parisienne; A Walk in Paris; and Paris by Night. The Frist Center is one of three venues in the United States to present this iteration of an exhibition that was on view at the Petit Palais in 2014.
