le Petit Palais

I was in the area of the Petit Palais with the Grand Palais right across the street with a friend the other day and we decided to go inside for a look especially since it is a free entry. It had some very good Impressionist art and I especially liked some furniture and jewelry done by Guimard, that Art Deco genius. I couldn’t take any photos though so just had to settle for the exterior.


The front entrance. It was built in 1900 for an Industrial Fair.


This is outside in the splendid garden.


Looping garlands of gold.


And a closeup.
