Behind the scenes: In the Studio, the Artist Photographed at the Petit Palais

You are invited to step inside the secret world of the artist’s studio in this new exhibition offering a photographic look at the creative spaces from which visual magic emerges. Such workshops have always held a fascination for the public, as we love to see the artist at work and have the creative process made tangible. With the invention of photography in the 19th century, the studio became a more familiar place, and can even be viewed as a work of art in itself, or as a metaphor for the birth of images. Here, nearly 400 photographs, along with videos, paintings and sculptures, illuminate the creative worlds of Ingres, Matisse and Picasso through to Miquel Bracelo, Jeff Koons and more.

 

Exhibition “In the Studio, the Artist Photographed”, until July 17th 2016 at the Petit Palais.

Just 30 minutes from the Hotel Monge, Avenue Winston Churchill, Paris 8th arrondissement.

Open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 18:00, late opening Friday until 21:00
