Recently remodeled, the Jeu de Paume has been transformed into an exhibition hall for contempory art.
Napoleon III authorized in 1851 the members of the circle of the Paume to build the “Jeu de Paume” under the condition that they respect the style of the Orangerie Buildings. It hosted exhibitions at the beginning of the century, and was turned into the Museum of Impressionnist in 1922. In 1987, the collection of impressionist art was transferred to the Musée d’Orsay. Recently remodeled, the Jeu de Paume has been transformed into an exhibition hall for contempory art.
Inside, the design of the staircase and the galleries and its white walls and wooden floors, emphasize the height of the building.
