Grand Palais National Galleries
Built in the same period as the pont Alexandre-III , the architecture of the Grand Palais is stunning. The ionic columns and the exuberant decoration of the façade invite visitors to discover an interior as splendid as its exterior. A large glass roof supported by a metallic structure lends this area a luminous delicacy enhanced by the art nouveau style. Erected "par la Republique à la gloire de l'art français" (by the Republic for the glory of French Art), the Grand Palais holds temporary exhibitions, which are always very popular.
I visited le Grand Palais twice in the late 80's. My dad got an invitation to exhibit some of his art there, taking part in an international movement called 'La figuration critique'.
At the time, I was still a student and I pretty much liked the opportunity to visit France.
I knew about the Tour Eiffel and the Louvre and didn't know what to expect.
The whole experience was overwhelming to me. I found the round building with different galleries on different floors very charming.
This building is just the place to give any work of art that something extra to make it stand out!
It's 20 years ago since I visited the Grand Palais and I hope the city of Paris has been treating it well!!
It'll always be a part of my youth memories!
