    Tour de France Final Stage- Paris

    July 28, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    We went 4 hours early and still couldn’t get up to where we had planned. However we did get a good spot at the barrier.
    Tom Scully the kiwi led for several laps before Caleb Ewan the Aussie took out the stage win.
    Half of Colombia were around to celebrate their rider Egan Bernal winning the tour.
    The Eiffel Tower was lit up all glittery for their efforts.
    Fabulous to see the start and the finish- even if we were so close but so far to the Champs Elysee.

    Petit Palais and the Orangerie

    September 19, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    The Petit Palais has a wonderful exhibit of French Impressionistic works painted in England. Beginning in 1870 the Franco-Prussian War forced many of these artists to seek refuge in London. English tastes and preferences caused these French artists to alter their style so that their works would sell to English buyers. Next we visited the Orangerie in the Tuileries to see their display of the Water Lilies of Claude Monet, as well as the works of Cézanne, Pissarro and Renoir. We were only a few blocks from the church where Cesar Franck served as organist for most of his adult life. We were within a mile of the place where Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel changed the way we think about music. Much of my understanding of the world and of beauty was formed within a stone’s throw of where we sit tonight.Read more

    Place de le Concorde

    September 26, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    The oldest monument in Paris, it was given to France by the Egyptians.

    Like everything else here it does not look like much until you get up close and personal and the detail just blows you away.

    Musee de l'Orangarie

    April 14, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    There are so many museums in Paris to choose from, you have to be selective. I chose this smaller one because it housed impressionist paintings and in particular had two rooms of Claude Monet's Water Lillie paintings. I had seen some of them in New York and had had my first emotional reaction to art that I can remember. They did not disappoint and I found myself sighing and relaxing as I entered the first room. These paintings are enormous, covering metres of the rooms they are shown in. Traditionally they are in oval rooms with seats in the middle for you to sit and enjoy. Quiet is enforced and adds to the feeling of tranquility. The two rooms had quite different colors and moods.

    Downstairs there was a small collection of other painters work. I was surprised how many names I recognised given my rudimentary knowledge of such things. There was paintings by Picasso, Renoir, Mattisse, Cezanne, Rousseau, Soutine etc but the collection was small enough to not be overwhelming. Highly recommend it if you just want a taste of the art on offer in Paris.

    Some of the sculptures from the FIAC exhibition in Les Jardins des Tuileries. Which one do you like? I liked the pinwheels. Doug liked the one made with 100 shovels.
