Today, at Colette's urging, we went after lunch to the Musee de Montmartre for a special exhibition called "The Esprit de Montmartre et l'art modern - 1875-1910." While this is the closest museum to our home, we don't go much, knowing the collection, but I was convinced that the temporary exhibition would be different from that I was familiar with - Wrong! Not that it was bad, just more of the permanent collection, dug up from the bowels for the visitors.
It's true I was a bit put-out at having the see the same stuff again, but ever-the-respectful husband that I am, I looked at the exhibits, admired the newly renovated building (with an elevator to the 3rd floor!) and rested for a while in the newly rejuvenated gardens. The day was perfect and the view of Paris (from the upper floors of the museum's two buildings) was lovely.
Art 1 Wow; Gardens 3 Wows.
