Take a virtual visit to Paris with art historian and frequent Paris visitor Julie-Anne Plax for a four-part lecture series highlighting major monuments, and museums that are “hidden gems” in the City of Lights. We’ll explore Ancient Roman and “barbarian” Paris, the lofty Medieval cathedrals; the urban planning projects of Henri IV and Louis XIV; the nineteenth-century embellishments during Napoleon, and the transformation and “modernization” of the city by Baron van Haussmann plus more recent urban planning projects, such as the business district of La Défense, Mitterand’s Grand Projets, and the newly formed Parc Bercy in the former warehouse district.
