Essayer at the Musée du Louvre

  12. I remember all the artists in the French museums trying their hand at "copying" the masters. And, I have a copy of Eight Hundred Grapes which seems to be the IT book of the summer; looking forward to reading it, although I'm not usually a fan of what's popular. ;)

  13. What an interesting photo! It seems to beg the viewer to climb into a story about what the essayer is doing.
