The Making Of The Great Museums Of Paris
Following the success of Grands Châteaux of the Loire
and Ile-de-France ,
The Making of the French Garden and The
Great Churches of Paris
series of online talks, Russell Kelley returns to offer an enthralling new Zoom series about an essential pillar of France’s cultural
heritage: the extraordinary museums that were established in Paris starting with the Revolution and continuing through the end of the 19th
century. We know you will love The Making of the Great Museums of Paris!
Russell sets the stage in his introductory lecture for the creation of the very first museums in France and elsewhere, inspired first by the Renaissance and then by the Enlightenment. What follows are presentations by the directors and curators of six of the first great museums established in and around Paris between 1793 and 1898, exploring how each institution came to be, and how it has evolved until today.
