Painting exhibitions Paris celebrates the work of some of the major artists of Victorian times.

During the reign of Queen Victoria in Great Britain, a great many of the most eminent artists of the day were drawn to the 'cult of beauty' and sought to depict it in their work. This important exhibition is part of an international event and will appear in Rome, Madrid and London as well as at Jacquemart-Andre Museum in Paris.

This remarkable exhibition of pieces from the renowned Pérez Simón collection, one of the most extensive collections of Victorian sensual art in the world, brings some 50 or so masterpieces by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Sir Frederic Leighton, Edward Burne-Jones and Albert Moore and many others to Paris.
