Their Royal Highnesses Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stépahnie of Luxembourg were in Paris on Wednesday, 3 May to open the Révélations exhibit at the Grand Palais.

The Révélations exhibit, in its third edition, displays the work of more than 400 artists, designers, craftsmen, and manufacturers from across the globe. Some of those who have worked at the exhibit come from Luxembourg. They include the sculptor, Wouter van der Vlugt; furniture maker, Tine Krumhorn; and stone artist, Tom Flick.

The Grand Ducal Court said, in part, in a press release, “Révélations is a unique opportunity to make itself known to the general public and to be in direct contact with potential customers.” Their Royal Highnesses also met Guy Arendt, Secretary of State for Culture and Henri Jobbé-Duval, Commissioner-General of “Révélations” while at the Grand Palais.

The couple spent a significant amount of time at the exhibit and thanked the artists for “the exceptional quality of their work.” They also highlighted how important the work of artists is to the economy of Luxembourg.

The Hereditary Grand Duke told the assembled press, “This is a key sector for our country. We must develop it and constantly promote it, especially among young people.”
