DRAWING WEEK

On the initiative of the Salon du dessin, the museums of Paris and the Ile de France region celebrate drawing….

Since its creation in 1999 by the Salon du dessin, the Drawing Week is present in very varied places, like the drawings presented there.

Again this year, the Drawing Week will be a chance to compare drawings from the past with contemporary sheets, thus seducing both collectors and connoisseurs, those familiar with them and the youngest bargain hunters. And of course, it will allow exchanges and dialogues with specialists.

In this context, each participating museum organises private visits of its collections or its temporary exhibitions.

These private visits are free and open to all subject to availability.

Reservations are made on the site of the Salon du dessin only, and you can register for a maximum of 2 events.

Collection Hermes

ÉMILE HERMÈS COLLECTION

VISIT TO A PARIS COLLECTION OF CURIOSITIES

Private visit to a Paris collection of curiosities, the secret garden serving as an inspiration for the Maison Hermès.

Grandson of the prestigious Parisian saddle-maker and visionary entrepreneur, Emile Maurice Hermès (1871-1951) was an enthusiast for all that combined beauty with the useful. He put together a collection of singular objects from the world of art and the decorative arts, paintings, drawings and books—a veritable history of horses and travel that crisscrosses latitudes and eras.

Preserved as it was originally displayed, his private collection creates the effect of an astonishing Aladdin’s cave of treasures.  Travel cases for toiletries, walking sticks with ingenious mechanisms, goat carts, masterpieces of Carmelite paper-art, saddles and slipper-stirrups from the Amazon, a horse-tricycle, and a whimsical 18th century herbarium feature along the way in this trip through time in a captivating place, a reflection of the history of Maison Hermès and a source of its creativity.

 

Location
The meeting place will be communicated to you after registration.

ARCHITECTURAL DRAWINGS

The Great Exhibition of London in 1851 and the five that followed in Paris from 1855 to 1900 provided architects with a veritable playground for their work, initiated by the Crystal Palace, built by Joseph Paxton and famous for its transparency.

This exhibition of works was designed to draw on the vast riches of more than 22,000 architectural drawings in the collections of the Musée d’Orsay. It presents an exceptional selection of proposals for spectacular constructions: the Palais train station at the Champ-de-Mars (1878); the Tour Eiffel (1889), and the Porte Monumentale (1900). The visit will be conducted by Monsieur François Blanchetière, Conservateur du Patrimoine and Madame Fabienne Chevallier, architectural historian and Chargée de la Mission Inventaires at the Musée d'Orsay.
