1. That tapestry is at the Musee Du Moyen Age, tho

At least it was several years ago when I was there

5. Agree. At the Moyen Age - Cluny

Interestingly, the "The Lady and the Unicorn" was on loan early 2018 in Sydney. Would expect it to be back at the Cluny.

4. Your forgotten artist is Monet

Those are the two surviving fragments of "Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe" by Monet, not to be confused with the more scandalous painting of the same name by Manet.

7. Must be an oversight

Didn't the French put Elmer Fudd in to hunt the Wacky Wabbit?

8. Aah, nice images.

Reminds me of our week there a couple of years ago. Van Gogh in the D'Orsay museum blew me away. Monet was my second favorite.

Almost all of those impressionist artists were hanging around Paris for a period of only about 10 years as I recall, and made some incredible works in that time.

Looks like you liked it too!
