    Grand Palais, Paris
    With its 240 metre-long façade (entered from Avenue Franklin Roosevelt), the Grand Palais is used for various exhibitions. Part of the building is the permanent site of the Palais de la Découverte where recent scientific discoveries, interactive exhibits, some very good temporary exhibitions and a planetarium are displayed.

    The Collection
    The collection begins with large nineteenth-century French academic pictures like Doré's Valley of Tears, to rooms filled with fifteenth-century Flemish paintings, and Italian Renaissance works including examples by Botticelli, Mantegna and Cima da Conegliano. There are also objets d'art, maiolica ware, ivories, and statuary. Other rooms have paintings by some of the great Dutch masters of the seventeenth century. Beyond the stairway the rooms contain a small collection of French nineteenth-century art: there are a number of Courbets, as well as works by Corot, the Impressionists, Cézanne, Gauguin, Vuillard, and Toulouse-Lautrec. A panelled room at the end of the tour contains eighteenth-century paintings, tapestries, china and a sedan
