Théodore Rousseau. The Voice of the Forest

Petit Palais - Musée des Beaux-Arts de la ville de Paris, Avenue Winston Churchill - 75008 Paris
From March 5, 2024 to July 7, 2024

Exhibition devoted to Théodore Rousseau, a 19th-century painter whose work was inspired by nature and the forest of Fontainebleau.

The Petit Palais is devoting a major exhibition to the landscape painter Théodore Rousseau (1812-1867), who lived in the village of Barbizon from 1847 and was a leading figure of the Barbizon School. With around one hundred paintings from major French and European museums, the exhibition retraces the career of this 19th-century painter who was passionate about nature. He was particularly fond of the forest of Fontainebleau, where he would walk and sketch before finishing the works in his studio. An artist committed to ecology ahead of his time, he contributed to the protection of this forest, obtaining the designation of part of it as an ‘artistic reserve’ in 1853.
From 10am to 6pm. From 10am to 8pm Friday and Saturday. Closed on Monday and 1st May and 14 July.
€12. Reduced rate: €10.
