The Louvre- en plein aire

Wanting to capture an image of the Louvre as a keepsake of our trip, it took some searching to find a spot that had enough information without becoming an architectural rendering. And I needed to find a spot to tuck into that was out of the scorching sun!  I knew this spot was right when I came to it. (I invested in an annual membership so I could go often even though we were in Paris for only a month!)

Museum of Romantic Life

On a blistering hot day in Paris we visited the Musee de la Vie Romantique. Home of painter Ari Scheffer whose work we saw at the Louvre. He hosted such luminaries as Geoge Sand, Chopin, Delacroix, Ingres, Liszt, Rossini, Dickens, Gounod... You get the point!
