This event has ended.

Mary Ryan Gallery presents Babar’s Guide to Paris, an exhibition of original watercolor illustrations and preparatory studies by Laurent de Brunhoff for his most recent Babar book of the same name. Published in the spring of 2017 by Abrams Books, Babar’s Guide to Paris features 33 new watercolors by de Brunhoff that celebrate the City of Light’s iconic sites and simple pleasures, from wandering through the Louvre to spending an afternoon reading at a café.

In Babar’s Guide to Paris, the youngest daughter of the family, Isabelle, prepares for her first visit to Paris alone. Babar shares his best tips for navigating the city and embracing the local French culture, suggesting not only which well-known sites not to miss but how to truly experience the city like a Parisian: walk everywhere, exchange ideas in a garden, become a regular at a restaurant and befriend the waiter.

Mary Ryan Gallery is the exclusive representative for Laurent and Jean de Brunhoff’s art including all Babar published watercolor illustrations, studies and drawings.
