Feel the glory of The Belle Époque

CloudGuide

The Belle Époque, French for Beautiful Era, was the prosperous time between the Franco-Prussian war in 1871 and the outbreak of World War I in 1914. This epoch was distinguished by ubiquitous optimism, regional peace, economic prosperity and countless technological innovations. Château-Musée de Nemours in Nemours, France aims to reflect on this period and evoke the feeling of The Belle Epoque in its temporary exhibition by immersing its visitors in the artistic, intellectual and social atmosphere spread through the vast lands of the French Third Republic. The exposition delivers a panorama of the effervescent period, tackling themes from Art Nouveau to the study of Japanese art; the epiphany of entertainment and leisure, including fashion, celebrities and the growing popularity of theater and music halls. Featuring about a hundred and twenty prominent works including paintings, sculptures, photographs, decorative arts and jewels, the exhibition gives a tribute to artists at the turn of the century. Prosperous names such as Jules Chéret, Félix Bracquemond, Emile Gallé and many others take us back to the “Golden Age” of flourishing arts before the horrors of World War I changed the world forever.
