Recent Figurative Works from Blogspot: "Peintures des Musees de France"

One of the Blogs I follow regularily is "Peintures Musees de France" (highly recommended) which features a travelog of visits to Art Museums, well known and not so well known, throughout France. It is in French but is well worth a visit now and again for a first hand impression of French cultural sites. I found several recent posts of nude figurative works on the blog this afternoon and thought I would share them with you. (All illustrations below are courtsey of Blogspot: Peintures Musees de France.)
