This happened to me in the Place des Vosges, strolling around the shops, galleries and restaurants. I've mentioned before that if I had to choose one place in all of Paris where I would "center" myself after an exhausting day, or just go to get filled up, it would be this square where Victor Hugo lived.
The painter Denis Fremond's work was on display in the Sibman Gallery. His cityscapes and roomscapes of Paris and New York are simple, full of interesting plays of light, and always have just one man in them (himself?).
