The Petit Palais in Paris with Winston Churchill, France

The Petit Palais is the City of Paris Museum of Fine Arts. It was built for the 1900 Exposition Universelle and is located across from the Grand Palais on Avenue Winston-Churchill. As a city museum, it is free of charge although you will pay for special exhibits. There is an amazingly large and diverse collection of paintings along with furniture, decor and entire rooms on exhibit. There are ancient and medieval works, works from the French and Italian Renaissance and Flemish and Dutch paintings. You will find paintings from major French artists of the 19th century such as Delacroix, Monet, Sisley, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec and Courbet among others. A new sculpture exhibit is to open in 2020 although the opening may be delayed by the corona virus lockdown.
