Well. When an American tourist visits Paris that tourist must visit the great art museum, The Louvre. And we did. I was impressed with the room after room of paintings by famous artists. And by the Egyptian sculpture.
(Uh-uh, don't touch, Bruce.)
I didn't get a picture of Mona Lisa because a recent attack on it by a madman had resulted in bulletproof (and highly reflective) glass being installed in front of it. It was smaller than I had expected.
But I did finally get a shot of this lady after the many Japanese tourists posing with her moved aside.
I asked SWMBO if she wanted her picture taken with the Venus de Milo. She said she didn't want the comparison.
But here's the carved marble that really amazed me.
You can tell me about the David (we saw him in Florence, Italy) and the Pieta (we saw one of the many carved by Michaelangelo) and any number of other masterpieces. But just look at this mattress. It resembles an air mattress in a swimming pool but the detail of the wrinkles in it was just amazing to me.
Oh, and the reclining figure wasn't bad either.
