Paris – A few Art Galleries

Bruce and I revisited a few of the art galleries in Paris. It is interesting to go multiple times as each time you get something more out of the visit.

The Picasso Museum showed over 3,500 of his pieces over a wide range of his development and evolving body of work. There were sculptures as well as personal documents.

The Orsay museum is housed in a former railway station built between 1898 and 1900. It houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces in the world.

The Centre Pompidou focuses on art of the 20th and 21st centuries. The building is a bit radical and high tech looking, painted in primary colours, with exposed pipes, air ducts and and an exterior escalator which gives a wonderful view over the area.

Unfortunately the moving and water spraying sculptures were not operating as they were being cleaned.
