Last few days in Paris
We walked around the left bank in some of our fave haunts and noticed an Annie Leibowitz show at the Pavilion Comtesse de Caen. The show consists of 200 photographs in chronological order chosen by her art director and pinned on the walls without any frames. Hunter S. Thompson above.
She has photographed and essentially documented many of the most famous photos today. This particular one was taken 5 hours before Lennon was shot. I have always loved this photo.
I don’t think I have ever seen this photo of Mick Jagger before. He is touring the US right now, and it is fun watching him document his show and journey on Instagram at a youthful 78 years.
We dined at Saint Sebastian in the 11th that evening. Lucky for us, Jessica and her friend came in for the weekend from London.
The following day we went to the Musee D’Orsay. I loved this from Renoir, the country dance and the city dance represent what went on during that time. For me, much of the impressionist and neo-impressionist work never gets old.
The dancer from Degas
The show was a mixture of Marlene Dumas’s work as well. This one, Waiting for Meaning, hit me.
And this painting from Manet, Berthe Morisot a l’eventail.
Dinner was at Racines, in the 2nd down an alleyway filled with other restaurants.
We strolled home, taking in the city of lights before leaving the next day. And, of course, we will be back.
