A trip to the art gallery

Who would’ve thought looking at 17th and 18th century French paintings could be so interesting! Well, I did… to some extent.
But it was more than I thought. It was a nice recap of French history for me, along with some spectacular works of art. It’s an interesting feeling when you look at these works and try and imagine life as the artists tried to depict them.
It’s intereting how the rich and famous of pre-revolution France lived and a quick comparion to how the rich and famous in our society live. There are a lot of parallels, and I sure hope there are more parallels when it comes to how they were overthrown! So, on an early note : Happy Bastille Day!
