Magical illuminations and fine arts at the Louvre for Christmas

Published on Thursday, 8 December 2016 in the category Visit Paris

To make your end of year celebrations truly unforgettable you need to treat yourself to a stay in Paris, a city that really understands the magic of Christmas! After a visit to the magnificent Salon des Beaux-Arts at the Carrousel du Louvre, stroll by the shop windows and among the illuminations to immerse yourself thoroughly in the Christmas spirit!

 

The Carrousel du Louvre presents fine arts

 

From December 8th to 11th this year, the contemporary arts are honoured at the Carrousel du Louvre. The event, which brings together more than 600 international artists, offers a fascinating and completely free opportunity to discover exceptional paintings, sculptures, photographs and engravings. In 1725, under the auspices of the Académie des Beaux Arts, the very first such salon took place in the Cour Carrée of the Louvre. Close to three centuries later the event is still a force to be reckoned with in the art world, and now takes place beneath the world-famous glass pyramid of the Louvre. More than ever, the Salon des Beaux-Arts is an occasion for celebrating beauty and originality, and an opportunity to bear witness to the next evolutions in art! Enjoy the show and then return to the comfortable, spacious and pleasant rooms of the Hotel Paris France, located less than 3 kilometres from the Louvre Museum and its Carrousel.
