Recommended Blog Spot: Peintures des Musées de France

I wanted to take a few minutes and recommend one of my favorite Blog sites again. If you love art the way I do then "Peintures des Musees de France" ( is one Blog you would want to follow religiously because you get a comprehensive tour of some of the most "missed" art museums and collections of beauty in all of France. The author of the Blog gives you a first hand tour of off the beaten tourist path of not so well know art collections in France. The blog is in French but with Google Translate that should not be a problem if you do not know the language. Pay this wonderful Blog a visit and I am sure you will return time and time again.  

Auguste Guénot (1882-1966) : Adolescent à la Grappe (1930). Bronze.
