Le Paris Libertin du XVIII et XIX eme siècle ( guided tour English/French)

Libertine Paris of the XVIII and XIX Century. I would like to guide you through libertine Paris while we walk through the gardens of the Palais Royal where it originated. I will explain how in the 18th century the Palais Royal became the centre of fashion of elegant Parisian society, often leaning towards the libertine. I will also describe the history of the maisons closes (sumptuous brothels) and the celebrity courtisanes (cultivated prostitutes) who inspired some of the great French writers of the 19th century (Zola et Maupassant) and artists (Toulouse Lautrec et Degas). Je vous propose d évoquer le Paris libertin en nous promenant dans les jardins du Palais Royal. Je vous raconterai comment le Palais Royal devint au XVIII eme siècle le rendez vous à la mode d une société parisienne élégante et souvent libertine. Je vous parlerai aussi de l histoire des maisons closes et des courtisanes les plus réputées de Paris qui ont inspiré les plus grands écrivains français du XIX eme siécle ( Zola et Maupassant)ainsi que les peintres ( Toulouse Lautrec

    Edith Piaf couldn't have done better!!! The topic was well-researched and the presentation material was excellent. Looking forward to next event. Hopefully, sun-God will smile for a longer time. Deepak
