It was on gray winter sunday….
I went to Le Louvre to see an exhibition about Parmigianino. I have been to Le Louvre so many times but every single time I discover new things….such as the Windows of the Museum. They bring something special to the place…. this little touch, the perfect light, this “je ne sais quoi” as we say it in French that gives an atmosphere of romantic, sadness, nostalgia,… all that is needed to understand what message artists wanted to send through their paintings. Sometimes they wanted to transmit an emotion, other times their mood, a scene of life, a life lesson, etc…
As Edward Hopper said: “if I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint“.
Besides, you realise, walking around among all the “chef d’oeuvre“of the museum, that what is outside can also be very beautiful… it can be a building, the sky, the French flag et “plein d’autres choses“!
