The Opera Garnier; a palace for music and dance (french version) - Jean-Michel Leniaud, Audrey Gay-Mazuel, Delphine PinasaSold by Opéra National de Paris
DescriptionThe Palais Garnier is a total, immense work, an impressive space dedicated to the ephemera of music, dance and stage design, where architecture vies with painting, sculpture and the decorative arts: in other words, a masterpiece.
This technical and artistic feat is the achievement of a genius architect who was able to create a temple that was revolutionary in its modern structure, as well as a sumptuous building where stone is combined with the richness of materials: gold, marble, bronze, mosaic, crystal, silk and velvet...
To rediscover this opera house with its inimitable style, where the Italian Renaissance is joined by the powerful breath of the Baroque, we needed the eye of a photographer attracted by the sumptuousness of the materials, by the incredible diversity of the stuccos, and who highlights a thousand little-known details, so that the artistic, magical excess of this 19th century palace can burst forth.
