Before an Exhibition…

Posted on June 6, 2012 by


CliffLeeParis report on the preparations for an exhibition at The Petit Palais.

Ever wonder how those amazing timeless, historical, and world renown large oeuvres arrive and got installed in a museum before an exhibition in Paris?

It might only take us a few minutes to stare and to judge a painting, but the painting itself had gone through years of planning, packing, restoring, uploading, downloading, positioning and considering before it is finally admired (or not) by us, the general public.

This is a rare insight into that process for the current exhibition of José Maria Sert at the museum Le Petit Palais, captured by the photographer Arjan Mak with the Spanish TV crew from Catalan.

It is also a homage to those men and women who are often behind the scenes but devoted their time and effort in the making of these breath-taking exhibition. This article is for you guys too – THANK YOU!

The J.M. Sert exhibition will be available only till August 5th, 2012

Entry Fee: 11 Euros

Location: Petit Palais, Museum of Fine Arts of the City of Paris, Avenue Winston Churchill, 75008 Paris, France
