Théodore Rousseau, the Voice of the Forest

The exhibition "Théodore Rousseau, the Voice of the Forest" at the Petit Palais shines a spotlight on the captivating work of Théodore Rousseau, a leading figure of the Barbizon School, whose innovative approach deeply influenced landscape painting in the 19th century.


Featuring a rich and varied selection of his works, this retrospective delves into Rousseau's intimate connection with nature, especially the Forest of Fontainebleau, which he depicted with remarkable intensity and fidelity. Visitors will discover how Rousseau captured the essence of the forest, letting its "voice" be heard through the interplay of light, the texture of plants, and the enveloping atmosphere of these landscapes. This exhibition provides a unique opportunity to dive into Rousseau's universe and grasp the significance of his legacy in art history.


Open to all, it runs from September 15, 2024, to January 15, 2025, offering a wonderful chance to connect with nature through the eyes of one of its most passionate interpreters.

Only 20 minutes away from the hotel with public transportation.
