Postman Cheval’s Ideal Palace

Broadcasted: Thursday, February 25th 2021 – 7:00 PM (Paris Time)

Discover the amazing story of the Ideal Palace, built by a French postman, alone.

Unique in the world, the Ideal Palace has inspired artists for more than a century.

Independent from any artistic trend, built with no architectural rules, the Ideal Palace has been admired by the Surrealists and is considered as an Outsider Art work.

It has been classified Historical Monument in 1969 by André Malraux, French Minister for Cultural Affairs at that time under Naïve Art.
