Le Jeu de Paume


On the right of the Octagonal pond, another pavilion, erected in 1860, was designed to house the halls of the jeu de paume, the ancestor of tennis. This building has the same dimensions as the Orangerie, its counterpart. From the 1900s, the building became a place for exhibiting paintings from foreign schools, then the Impressionists and finally modern and contemporary art. Today, the site is devoted to the diffusion of the image in the 20th and 21st centuries through photography, video, cinema, and installations. The sharp and eclectic programming makes it a must on the visual creation scene. The museum is closed for work until 2021.
