Here are a few extras -
|Venus en armes - I was quite taken by the little one trying on the helmet.|
|Lion - "I'm just a pussycat"|
|El greco - St Louis|
|Madame Récamier - Jean Louis David|
|Paris and Helen - Jean Louis David - the faces are very delicate and fine|
and the occasional facetiousness, such as my seeing Karl Marx's portrait in the Nymphéas, takes nothing away from the sheer brilliance and beauty.
