If I were in Paris... March 16, 2012

If I were in Paris... but surprisingly I don't need to because there are two incredible exhibitions  in town right now.

There's a huge exhibition at the Kimball including major works from the Clark Art Institute from Williamstown, Massachusetts--a small museum I love. Seventy-three paintings including works from Renoir, Monet, Manet, Degas, and everybody else in the Impressionist club.

Then, up the hill only a short walk away at the Amon Carter Museum is an exhibition of John Singer Sargent's paintings, again on loan from the Clark. Only four paintings are hung, but they are four excellent choices from Sargent's youth.

Combined with a walk through the Japanese gardens at the nearby botanical gardens, this is a lovely day.
