Description: Paris: Musees nationaux, 2010. 31cm., hardcover, 144pp. with numerous color photos. Summary: Catalogue déraisonné reflects two men’s passion for the Grand Palais. For two years, photographer Raphaël Gaillarde took his camera and explored every corner of the building. His selected shots reveal a wide range of moods, with a preference for behind-the-scenes views of events and some unexpected curiosities. His work is accompanied by the words of writer Tonino Benacquista whose fictional narratives inspired by the immensity and diversity of the Grand Palais open wide the doors of imagination. The crisscrossing visions of the two artists emphasise the sheer uniqueness of the building and offer readers an insight into the Grand Palais that is at once an ambitious vision and plenty of fun to read.
