Tagore at Le Petit Palais

Another cloudy day in Paris - another art exhibition to see before it closes. Tomorrow. Tagore, best known to me as a poet, but also, as I now know, a lovely painter. He has a touch of Blakesian vision about him. Much of the work is quite dark in tone and shading with a talent for mythological creatures, tender portraits, especially those of his wife, landscapes and narrative paintings - in fact something for everyone. Super!


Le Petit Palais garden has just sprung into life - spring is surely days away.
