I love Picasso so the Picasso-Rodin exhibit at the Musée Picasso easily made my list. The exhibit combines photos, videos, text, and, of course, art in many formats to celebrate the life of the great artist and to show how his work relates to that of Rodin.

 
 
 
 
Crossing the Seine to the Marais
 

But first I had to get there. We're staying in the left bank and the museum is in the right bank, in the same Marais neighbourhood as a number—a large number—of other museums and memorials, so the walk has become a familiar, almost daily, occurrence. The photo was taken on my walk; it's looking from the Pont des Arts pedestrian-only bridge towards Pont Neuf on the Île de la Cité. The sky is a little hazy in this photo, the weather is cool, but it's comfortable for walking.

I may have mentioned previously the big trial taking place on the island; it is related to the bombings of a few years ago. Most days this end of the island is heavy with police though it looked quiet today.

Museum courtyard
 
No lines at the museum today. Entrance is by appointment, like most French museums, and a mask and vaccine passport, a pass sanitaire, are required. We buy tickets online and use our phones to show our vaccine passports and tickets. So far I've had no problem booking tickets for our desired time.

Not the best example of a Picasso - Rodin comparison, sorry.

The walk home
 
After a couple hours of looking at art I headed home. The evening light started to look a bit golden.

Plein air painting
 
It's common to see people painting in the city. This fellow takes it further. His canvas is hanging from his neck and he is standing on a busy street corner as he works.
