Charles Ray at Pompidou and the Bourse du Commerce

  • Centre Pompidou, from February 16 to June 20, 2022
  • Bourse du Commerce, from February 16 to June 6, 2022

Charles Ray is being exhibited at both the Center Pompidou and the Bourse de Commerce. More than a third of the artist's work is being revealed for the first time in Paris.

Charles Ray designs works that leave an impression on the viewer, in particular through the extent of empty space required around them without distancing the latter. They are shown on the same level without any special media or devices.

"Please draw a sheep for me!"»

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is the second most translated work in the world after the Bible. It was written and illustrated by the author in New York during World War II.

After the June 1940 armistice, the aviator went into exile for New York with the goal of becoming one of the voices of the resistance. Dreaming of action, he finally joined a unit in charge of photographic reconnaissance in the spring of 1944 for the landing in Provence.

The Little Prince was published in New York in 1943. The author's translator offered him accommodation with journalist Sylvia Hamilton. It was during a reconnaissance flight that Antoine de Saint-Exupéry died on July 31, 1944, leaving the original manuscript of The Little Prince in the care of Silvia Hamilton, who had become his friend. This exceptional document, subsequently kept by the Morgan Library & Museum in New York, has never been shown in France.

This original manuscript will now be revealed at the Musée des Arts Décoratif. It is compared with mostly unpublished watercolors, sketches, and drawings, as well as with photographs, poems, newspaper clippings, and excerpts from correspondence.

In 1954, on the tenth anniversary of Saint-Exupéry's death, Gérard Philipe delivered an adaptation that had become legendary of The Little Prince.

Welcome to Paris

The 18th century building housing the Relais du Louvre has not always been a Hotel.

During the French Revolution, it was the head office of the Journal des Débats, the most widely circulated newspaper in 1812. Its publication was discontinued in 1944.

The ground floor was until 1850 home to the Café Momus frequented by Chateaubriand, Sainte-Beuve, Nadar, Gustave Courbet, Charles Baudelaire and others.
