Art In Paris October 2015

So much great art to see on this trip and other than the marvelous exhibition at the Musee d'Orsay Splendor and Misery Prostitution, 1850~1910, my visits were limited to galleries. Here's a glimpse of the art I saw and soon to follow, a post of store fronts and window displays. Above, surreal artwork at the exceptional Caffe Stern in the passage Panorama off the Grand Boulevard.
