Oh, Paris, my Paris

Reply Sat 2 Oct, 2010 01:19 pm
I've never been there, and am unlikely to be there in my future, so my Paris is a place in my mind culled from travel articles, novels situated in Paris, and photography of Paris, by many, including movies. Oh, and the Paris of paintings. And of remarks by friends who have been there on visits, or lived there for a while.

There's a lovely video with an article about Atget's early morning Paris, here:

How is your Paris today?

Today, a New York Times article by Michael Kimmelman, on a rare all-encompassing show of Claude Monet's work, at the Grand Palais:

I'll watch the video tonight. Can't seem to get videos to work here at work.

Paris is truly a great art city. I wonder if it ever will return to its prominence in the contemporary art world.
