Paris je t’aime: The Cluny

Paris je t’aime: The Cluny

This will be the final post in my week of Francophilia. And it works nicely as a transition into the barrage of holiday posts that will inevitably begin on Monday.

Located in the Latin Quarter, the Cluny Museum houses a select collection of Renaissance art and artifacts. It would be easy to be overwhelmed by this particular period of history, but the museum does a good job of featuring only a few pieces for maximum appreciation. The unicorn tapestries are the most famous but I particularly liked the stained glass displays.

In a few dark rooms, they have a handful of stained glass panels lit from behind and at set at eye level for maximum appreciation. I really loved the expressions on the dogs, sheep and hens. In that setting each color and piece of glass shone brightly and it reminded me of Christmas.

    The Paris posts will be missed.. are you sure you’ve told us everything? I was vicariously enjoying a trip to Paris myself. What’s this Latin Quarter.. I didn’t know anything about that.. sounds interesting.

    It’s the neighborhood across the Seine from Notre Dame. It’s home to a lot of museums, schools and monuments.
