The opera house in Paris is one of the most famous auditoriums in the world. Designed in 1861 by Charles Garnier, the building is in the Neo-Baroque style; it is also classified as Beaux-Arts, and has been the inspiration for many other grand buildings. It boasts more than 17 stories, and marble friezes, columns, and statuary fill the auditorium, which itself occupies only a fifth of the space. The opulent ornamentation and monumental style make the opera house one of the architectural masterpieces of the period. Charles Garnier’s design was so beloved that the building came to be called Palais Garnier. The drawings reproduced here include exterior and interior perspectives, as well as floor plans, facades, and floor and ceiling designs and ornamentation.

About: Charles Garnier

Midcentury modernist Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) portrayed the natural world with heart and humor. In vivid colors and simple shapes, his cardinals, ladybugs, and clever critters have become icons of wildlife art. His illustrations were published in magazines and books, notably Ford Times and The Giant Golden Book of Biology. A longtime conservationist, Harper created posters for more than 50 nature- and conservation-oriented organizations. His US National Park Service posters—massive, requiring a year each to paint—showcase delightful depictions of entire ecosystems in a style he defined as “minimal realism.” In his adopted hometown of Cincinnati, his public works are the legacy of an artist truly beguiled by the wild, one whose art was a quiet catalyst for ecological action.
