Musée Jacquemart-André

There is something quite disturbing about the opulence of this mansion in trhe midst of the massive poverty of 1870s Paris, but the owners did create a beautiful space  . . .




. . . and they filled it with exceptional works of art.

Of course there was the Louvre.

There was a fascinating exhibit of the Portuguese Renaissance -- Who knew?



There were so many choices . . .

The Ancient World

Centuries of European Art
Some of it, perhaps, a bit kitschy.

An Impressive Selection of Works from the Islamic World

The Musée Guimet is an Old Favorite of Ours
