Museum Day (7/24/11)

Marc Chagall, considered the most successful modern artist of the twentieth century, expressed his art through several media - canvas, stained glass, book illustrations, ceramics, tapestries, stage sets -- and painted part of the ceiling of the Paris Opera as well. Modern art is lost on me, but I try to stretch my brain. We walked the three miles to the Chagall Museum as we knew it would be our only exercise today.

We hoped we would not be as bored as these kids sitting on the step waiting for their day trip to the museum to end!

We were a little better than they appeared to be...

I am much more familiar with Matisse, but there was no picture taking allowed inside the museum.

After museum visiting we had lunch outdoors in the adjoining park and saw this carousel from 1900.

On our return walk we stopped for fresh baguette and a selection of pastries to bring home for dinner. After dinner we packed the bikes into their suitcases as our adventures on this trip are closing in to the end. One more day of vacation, then a chore day of shopping for household goods we have consumed, cleaning the apartment we have lived in and packing our suitcases for home.
