Paris celebrates Oscar Wilde, the ‘first rock star’

Paris celebrates Oscar Wilde, the ‘first rock star’
 
Exhibition poster «Oscar Wilde», at Petit Palais. Runs through to 15 January 2017. http://www.petitpalais.paris.fr/expositions/oscar-wilde

Irish novelist, playwright and poet Oscar Wilde was a Francophile, wrote in French, spent time here and died here in 1900. He’s buried in Père Lachaise cemetery, now a place of pilgrimage. But France had never honoured him with an exhibition. Now Paris’s Petit Palais has given him the cultural recognition he deserves. RFI reports from "Insolence Incarnate".
