Return to Paris Art Exhibitions


The new Animal exhibition at the Decorative Arts Museum compares the style and use of animal images and animal products over the years on multiple areas of design.

The exhibition is divided into seven themes including the use of animal images in art, ceramics, sculpture, toys, jewelry and furniture. There is also a section devoted to fashion through the ages and you'll see the use of feathers, fur, leather and more...

Tickets to this exhibition also cover entrance to the museum's permanent collection of furniture and decorative arts from the 1400's through to 2000.  The Art Deco section was probably my favorite.  Very fun to browse around if you have some extra time.

Also there is a wonderful cafe/restaurant in the museum "Le Saut du Loup" with a terrace where you can enjoy views of the Louvre, the Tuilleries and even the Eiffel Tower.
