It was a glorious Autumn morning....so we headed out fast, before it turned again.
It was the first time I'd ever seen Van Gogh's little gypsy caravans...what a magnificent painting this is....how did he do it? And to be able to stand so close to this wonderful art....if I reached out I could have touched it. And you should have seen the painting that Renoir did of his wife as a gypsy girl against a green Summer background....he must have loved her dearly to have painted her so tenderly...the painting is exquisite (even her eyebrows were superb!)
I really liked the exhibition http://www.grandpalais.fr/grandformat/bohemes-le-vernissage/ and afterwards we lingered in the Champs-Elysées area and noticed (and felt) how Autumn is now upon us.
Just as glorious as Spring really.....the golden, russet leaves being the blossoms of Autumn.
There was a fab Van Gogh painting of a pair of weathered old boots in the exhibition too....possibly symbolising the bohemian artist's difficult path through life.....http://www.grandpalais.fr/grandformat/bohemes-la-bande-annonce/....so just for fun, he's a trés jolie clip of the boots.
Yes...it was another trés bon day in Gaye Paree.
