Fragonard in Love exhibit recently opened at musee du Luxembourg.
Jean-Honoree Fragonard (1732 - 1806) painted during the same period as Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun (spelled correctly for once).
French Revolution unlike Vigée Le Brun? When you visit French cathedrals you're aware of the wreck and ruin during those years of so-called 'Liberty, equality and fraternity'. If you're keen to find out about the inner circle of the Jacobins; Robespierre and Danton, listen to radio BBC4's 3-part historic drama by renown Hilary Mantel. Gripping tales.
Fete du Miel - jardins du Luxumbourg
Les Routes du Miel (the honey roads) just opened September 19 on through January 19, 2016.
THE ONLY STREET IN PARIS, was a vertical Japanese map of rue des Martyrs. Should I draw the the map vertically? The copy shop kid said, "No way!"
Maille mustard shop in the Louvre. I stole a shot when no one was looking. Rue des Martyrs is a grand mixup of artisans old and new, patissieres, waffle-makers, gold-leaf experts.

My favorite Fragonard painting was in the Luxembourg show from the New York Met. It's called "The Letter".
