La vie parisienne 1650-1900
This catalogue describes an exhibition that seeks to display what it meant to live in Paris from 1650-1900. Eschewing the time-honored monuments sought by tourists, the exhibition features literature and images which portray the everyday. These materials demonstrate the drastic transformation between Paris in the seventeenth century and Paris by the early twentieth: the dramatic increase in population; the growth of urbanization and its accompanying problems; urban planning which turned Paris from a medieval city into a modern one; and the effect these changes had on the urban mentality.
