Inside The Pompidou Collections in Paris

As promised, here is a glimpse at some of the artwork within the Centre Pompidou in Paris, France. The collections are vast, so this is just a tiny snippet from a few galleries plus a few shots from a current special exhibition.

Any of the smaller versions of photographs will expand if you click on them and you will be able to see more detail.

The current special exhibit is devoted to the life and work of the artist and designer Eileen Gray. We have been admirers of her work for quite a long time and until we sold off all of our furniture in Australia prior to our 2-1/2 year round-the-world jaunt, we had one of those glass and chrome side tables that you see pictured in the museum shop photo.

    Hi !

    I thought you were bound for Australia. How are you two?

    You’d have to go back quite a few posts to read about the full trip. We spent almost a week in Normandy, then 3 days in Paris, then 3 days in Belgium, then 1 day back in London before flying from London to Iceland to Canada in one long day. We overnighted in Toronto, then flew down to Cincinnati on Air Canada (a one and a half hour flight), and we’re in Louisville for 8 days with Jennifer. Next we have a cross-country Amtrak adventure, then 8 days with Chris in Tacoma, Washington, THEN it’s back to Australia on the 8th of May. A very, VERY busy six week schedule!
