I handed the camera over to George once we had decided where we wanted to go. He took all the photos inside the museum.We love Winged Victory. There is always a crowd around her. There is always a crowd around this beauty too:Have you noticed that neither of these classic representations of beauty aren't skinny? I bet that if these women were flesh and bone instead of marble, they wouldn't be able to find a single dress to fit them in all of Paris. I take great comfort in that.
By the way, they've moved Mona Lisa to a larger room that isn't as "tucked away" as before. There is better access and consequently, a much more pleasant experience.
My personal favourites are the large format French paintings by David and Delacroix.Liberty Leading the People - Eugene Delacroix
Coronation of Napoleon -Jacques-Louis David
I am constantly astounded by Napoleon's ego!
It wasn't long after this photo was taken that we took off to get some lunch. A cheese and wine soaked affair!
