In France, Reading is Art

Standard

Just got back from a two-week trip to France, very jetlagged oui, but I wanted to share why I loved Paris so much. First of all, this was my favorite metro stop, Concorde. It’s filled with tiles of letters which contain hidden French sayings. Can you find any?

At the Musee d’Orsay there were paintings of my favorite pastime! I loved this one called “La Liseuse” by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and these two lovely ladies painted by Henri Fantin-Latour.

And yes, my husband and I also had the pleasure of dining with children’s book illustrator, Doug Cushman.

Oo-la-la! Such inspiration! I shall return.
