Panorama du Siècle (fragments)

Alfred Stevens, 1789-188

The single most important work from the second half of Stevens's career is the monumental Panorama du Siècle, 1789–1889, which he painted with Henri Gervex. Stevens painted the women and details and Gervex the men, with the help of 15 assistants. It was shown to great acclaim at the International Exhibition held in Paris in 1889. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Stevens_(painter)) Panorama du Siecle (Panorama of the Century), was painted with the help of Henri Gervex. It was an astonishing 120 meters long and 6 meters high (in other words, the size of a football field)! The immense panorama was installed at the Tuileries during the Exposition Universelle. Unsurprisingly, Stevens was unable to secure a permanent place to display the panorama after the fair ended, so he cut the painting into sections and distributed them to shareholders. One of these sections is now titled A Portrait of Parisian Celebrities. (http://albertis-window.com/2015/03/)
