Find out more about Felicie De Fauveau in Paris museum
From 13 June 2013 To 15 September 2013Address
Musee d'Orsay, 5 Quai Anatole France, 75007 Paris
Felicie De Fauveau was quite an unusual woman by 19th century standards, as she was a sculptress, a royalist, a Catholic, a single woman and a feminist.
She liked to create a political utopia in her works of art and eventually settled in Florence, where she produced Neo-Gothic and Neo- Renaissance-inspired sculptures with symbolism from heraldry.
Guests at Paris hotels can find out more about this unique historical figure at the Musee d'Orsay, where a special exhibition of her work will be hosted between 13th June and 15th September.
This will be the first retrospective devoted to De Fauveau and many of the pieces have never been seen in public before, so it should be a treat for both history and art enthusiasts alike.
Admission is also free with the museum entry price, so it could be the ideal way to spend a few hours.
Guests at the Millennium Hotel Paris Opera will have no trouble getting to the museum, as it is only ten minutes away by road.
