“Paris: Life & Luxury” @ the J. Paul Getty Museum


'Paris--Life-&-Luxury'-On-view-in-the-Exhibitions-Pavilion-at-the-J.-Paul-Getty-Museum-at-the-Getty-Center,-April-26-through-August-7,-2011Bonjour! The nation of France, and its capital city of Paris in particular, held a special status in European culture during the 18th century. On view in the Exhibitions Pavilion at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center, April 26 through August 7, 2011, “Paris: Life & Luxury” re-imagines, through art and material culture, the lifestyle of elite 18th-century Parisians who made their city the fashionable and cultural epicenter of Europe.


Charissa Bremer-David, curator of sculpture and decorative arts at the J. Paul Getty Museum and the exhibition’s co-curator, talks to AlBorde.com about the contributions of the French, and in particular the Parisian, to the visual and performing arts, language, literature, history, science, culinary, and fashion during this time period, and about the similarities between Parisian life in the 18th-century to modern day.
