Born to be Wilde! Oscar Wilde at the Petit Palais

Born to be Wilde! Oscar Wilde at the Petit Palais

An aesthete and a dandy, a literary genius with a penetrating and sparkling wit, Oscar Wilde was also an ardent Francophile and a fluent francophone. Although he ended his days in Paris in abject poverty, (“I’m dying beyond my means,” he said), the centenary of his death was not celebrated. Today the Petit Palais redresses that omission by presenting the first major exhibition in France devoted to the ‘Insolence Incarnate’. Featuring paintings on loan from England, Ireland, the United States, Canada, Italy, French museums and private collections, as well as paintings, manuscripts, photographs, drawings, cartoons, and personal effects, this exhibition offers a comprehensive look at a literary giant. Via some 200 artefacts, you will receive a vivid sense of the life and work of this legendary personality who was so intimately connected with the intellectual and artistic scene of his time.

 

Oscar Wilde; Insolence Incarnate at the Petit Palais, until January 15th, 2017
