At the beginning of the 20th century, the Petit Palais bought works of living artists at the Salon to constitute his young collection. Since the transfer of more contemporary works to the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris when it was created in 1961, the collections of the Petit Palais stop in 1914. To reconnect the thread with the contemporary creation the museum has chosen to invite every year, for the last four years, an artist of today to dialogue with his prestigious old fund. Valérie Jouve, committed artist and a major figure on the contemporary art scene, take up the gauntlet this fall with 50 works presented in the circuit of the permanent collections.
