Tuileries Exhibit Ends Sept. 21

The Portland Art Museum’s international exhibition celebrating the Tuileries Garden will end September 21. Don’t miss this stunning exhibition that explores the art, design, and evolution of Paris’ most famous garden.

It also celebrates garden designer André Le Nôtre (1613–1700)—best known for his grand perspectives and symmetry at the chateaux gardens of Versailles.

The Tuileries Gardens, stretching from the Louvre to the Place de la Concorde in central Paris, were originally created in 1564 in the Italian style and became the city’s first public parks area in 1667.

Created at the behest of Queen Catherine de’ Medici, the gardens were designed to enhance the Tuileries Palace, which was destroyed by fire in the 1871 uprising known as the Paris Commune. Visit the museum’s website for details.
