This Sunday will be the first Sunday of the month. This means it’s a museum day!
The beautiful musées de Paris* are free for everyone on Sundays, one of the many things I love about this city. Art and culture are available to those who seek it. I absolutely love the Musée Rodin in the 7th arrondissement. I can’t wait to enjoying the gardens of the museum come spring and warm weather.
Below is one of my favorite sculptures by Rodin, The Kiss. Every time I see it, I find something else to admire about this stunning piece. I’m fascinated by all sorts of art and especially by the artists who have the capacity to create masterpieces with their hands. Of these arts, I find sculpture to be especially impressive. How is it possible to create, to carve out figures and scenes from rock? How can these artists chisel out a soft curve, a billowing skirt, an unmistakeable expression?
To see some of the most gorgeous sculptures that Paris has to offer, stop by the Musée Rodin this Sunday. If you’re feeling especially motivated, continue your sculpture-filled day at the Louvre to see the Winged Victory of Samothrace!
