The leader of the Spanish school, official artist to King Philip IV at a time when Spain dominated the world, he was a contemporary of van Dyck, Bernini and Zuberan, although his art gave him a timelessness that is rivalled only by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Titian, Caravaggio and Rembrandt. - See more at: http://www.grandpalais.fr/en/event/velazquez#sthash.Ik0KK45x.dpuf

Le Grand Palais


     The Grand Palais des Champs-Elysées, frequently known as the Grand Palais is a large celebrated historic site comprising exhibition hall and a museum complex located at the Champs-Élysées in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, France. Construction of the Grand Palais began in 1897 following the demolition of the Palais de l'Industrie (Palace of the Industry) as part of the preparation works for the  1900  Universal Exposition , which also included the creation of the adjoining Petit Palais and Pont Alexandre III.

 

The structure was built in the style of Beaux-Arts architecture as taught by the École des Beaux-Arts of Paris. The building reflects the movement's taste for ornate architectural feature in the Pompier Style of the time with its stone facades, the formality of its floor planning and the use of techniques that were baroquely pioneering at the time, such as its glass vault, its structure made of iron in reference to Eiffel’s adjacent construction composed of light steel structure and for the  “Palais de l’Industrie”, the innovative use of reinforced concrete.
