The Jeu de Paume

The Jeu de Paume

Until the opening of the Musée d'Orsay in 1986, the Jeu de Paume housed an astounding collection of Impressionist paintings. However, when it was first built on the orders of Napoleon III in 1862, this fine rectangular building in the north corner of the Jardin des Tuileries housed courts used for playing the game we know as real tennis, the ancestor of the modern game. Following careful renovations that resulted in opening up the spaces within so they could receive plenty of natural light, the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume became an art centre dedicated to 20th and 21st century modern and postmodern photography, media ranging from cinema to installation art, and even architecture. Here, exhibitions of the works of artists, both internationally known and less so, are presented, along with film programmes, conferences and seminars. The library has also become a major international reference with a core collection of about 10,000 titles. Reopening on February 8th, this fascinating place well deserves your attention. JR.
