The Art of the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden

from French in Ann Arbor


Everyone I know who went loved it. Brigitte had posted the event previously (merci, Brigitte), but I thought that it deserved a repost since it closes soon.

The Art of the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden will present 100 paintings, photographs, drawings and sculptures by some of the most acclaimed European and American artists from the 17th to the 20th centuries. This glorious major exhibition explores the art, design and evolution of Paris’ famed Tuileries Garden and its impact on such artists as Camille Pissarro, Childe Hassam and many others. It also celebrates garden designer André Le Nôtre (1613–1700)—best known for his grand perspectives and symmetry at the chateaux gardens of Versailles—who transformed the Tuileries from an outdoor museum for French royalty into a French formal garden for Louis XIV. The Tuileries, which stretches from the Louvre to the Place de la Concorde in central Paris, was originally created in 1564 and became the city’s first public park in 1667.

Museum members receive free admission to The Art of the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden. Tickets for nonmembers are $8.50 for adults and $5.50 for seniors 65 and older and students.

The exhibition is organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, the Portland Art Museum, Oregon and the Toledo Museum of Art, with the special collaboration of the Musée du Louvre.



I want to be transported to French garden beauty soon and thought that, given our grey skies, you might want that also. Enjoy!

This is the best place for the tourism and the people who want to spend the best time just ready to go for the Sydney and people can go for 10 dollar minimum deposit casino and play with expert gambler.
