A Journey Through Time with Jean Goujon

Since the Renaissance, the Fontaine des Innocents has undergone numerous transformations, keeping pace with the urban changes in Paris. This exhibition highlights the work of Jean Goujon, the talented sculptor behind the fountain’s magnificent reliefs. You will have the unique opportunity to admire some of the finest sculpted decorations by Goujon, including the famous five nymphs.

A Dialogue Between the Works

The sculptures exhibited at the Musée Carnavalet harmoniously dialogue with the three reliefs preserved at the Louvre Museum since the early 19th century. This exhibition provides an enriching perspective on how these works have inspired generations of artists - painters, sculptors, ceramicists, and photographers.
