Petit Palais - la cour

Petit Palais
The Courtyard

At the center of this beautiful palace is a quiet and serene courtyard with patio seating for lunch or un café.
  The museum is free and the courtyard is perfect for a rest after seeing the museum and its exquisite palace.

Do not miss Monet's  "Soleil Couchant sur la Seine à Lavacourt"
and Rembrandt's self-portrait painted in 1631.

I have only seen this once, in November and it was of course, not this lush. I must get back there!

A real green oasis right in the center of the big city!

Hello Genie:

This looks to be idyllic and we love all the statuesque Euphorbia. A perfect oasis on a summer's day.

Jeanie said...

What a hidden treasure. It goes in the "next time" book!

I like the spots of purple amoung all of the green.
