Bangle bracelet Dutuit Staircase - Petit Palais

BB400431
Built for the occasion of the Universal Exhibition in 1900, the Petit Palais was the concept of the architect Charles Girault (1851-1932). He himself designed the wrought-iron staircase banisters in the two rotundas, north and south, of the building. Adorned with great foliation motifs, they constitute a particularly virtuoso form of wrought-ironwork. In 1902 Auguste Dutuit, heir to a great family fortune stemming from the textile industry, great lover of art, bequeathed his collections to the City of Paris. More than 20,000 artworks found places for themselves in the Petit Palais that became the same year a museum, and the south wing took its name.

Staircase from the Dalou Charles Girault rotunda (1851 - 1932). Wrought iron. Petit Palais, Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris, Paris.
