Petit Palais

I was prompted to visit the Petit Palais by an article that said:

“Take the price of admission to the Petit Palais’ Fine Arts Museum (0€), divide it by the 1300 works on display, and you’ve got more value than you can shake a selfie stick at. You might not find any paintings your grandmother back home has heard of, but the collection inside this Belle Époque mini-palace is more than respectable with offerings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Cézanne, Degas and Monet.”

While there was never any possibility of a selfie stick ever bring in my possession, there is some beautiful art at the Petit Palais. And there are also works by Delacroix,  Rodin, and many others.

The pictures are of the inside jardin. In the second picture you can see some people sitting. That is the small café associated with Petit Palais. You can sit under the colonnade or inside on either of two levels. It does not show, but there was quite a thunderstorm. Nobody is setting too near the roof’s edge.
