Petit Palais opens first major exhibition in France devoted to the famous writer Oscar Wilde

The Petit Palais is presenting the first major exhibition in France devoted to the famous writer Oscar Wilde (Dublin 1854 ? Paris 1900). Although Wilde died in the French capital, the centenary of his death was not celebrated here; London, on the contrary, honoured him with two large-scale exhibitions in 2000, one ? mainly literary and biographical ? at the British Library, and the other at the Barbican Centre, focusing on his connections with the artists of his time.
