Petit Palais




The day Marie and I went to Petit Palais, there was a special exhibit, pieces of which were in every room. As a result, there were "no photos allowed!" The courtyard did provide a vista filled with art and nature, all warmed by the spring sunshine.



Do not forget to look "down" also!

Nice photo Genie. Isn't it frustrating when photographs are not allowed inside exhibitions.

This is precisely why I love Paris so much --- you can find beauty and elegance everywhere --- even the floors!!! And this is why I love your blog so much --- you capture it so very well!!

Le Petit Palais, along with le Musée Marmottan Monet (it used to be only le Musée Marmottan) et le Musée d'Orsay are my favorites.

Oh yes! In Paris I muttered to myself every day... "look up, look down". I do that at trade fairs too.... the best stuff is always there.. up and down! A-M xx

Very tricky of them to do that. They did that when I went to Versailles too, but it is devilishly tricky to stop photos by mobile phones.

I really admire people who can create such beauty.

No photos allowed?! Didn't they know you were there??
And yet look what you managed to bring us anyway. Gorgeous.

Good point Genie!!! When in the Vatican last summer, there were some very memorable floors!!! The attention to detail in these old cathedrals is absolutely amazing...no wonder most of them took several generations of artisans to complete!!!

The swirls and design are works of art in themselves.

In Paris you can never be bored with all the looking up and looking down in search of beautiful things!
