Canaday Gallery

The Art of the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden will present 100 paintings, photographs, drawings and sculptures by some of the most acclaimed European and American artists from the 17th to the 20th centuries. This glorious major exhibition explores the art, design and evolution of Paris’ famed Tuileries Garden and its impact on such artists as Camille Pissarro, Childe Hassam and many others. It also celebrates garden designer André Le Nôtre (1613–1700)—best known for his grand perspectives and symmetry at the chateaux gardens of Versailles—who transformed the Tuileries from an outdoor museum for French royalty into a French formal garden for Louis XIV. The Tuileries, which stretches from the Louvre to the Place de la Concorde in central Paris, was originally created in 1564 and became the city’s first public park in 1667.

Museum members receive free admission to The Art of the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden. Tickets for nonmembers are $8.50 for adults and $5.50 for seniors 65 and older and students.

The exhibition is organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, the Portland Art Museum, Oregon and the Toledo Museum of Art, with the special collaboration of the Musée du Louvre.

Born and raised near Paris, I am a French chef in Ann Arbor. I love sharing my heritage and the joys of a traditional French dinner experience. Looking forward to learning from other people's passion.

Thanks so much for letting us know about this splendid show. Ovide and I went on Easter Sunday and loved it - definitely worth the trip if you have even a passing interest in garden design, public parks, architecture, and/or the history of Paris and of France as reflected in art. Ever since I saw "Tim's Vermeer" I've been thinking a lot about the influence of photography on art, so a bonus for me was the exhibit's exploration of this topic. Be sure to watch the excellent 15-minute introductory film produced by the Museum and shown in their auditorium before entering the exhibit.
