From the Louvre (and Café Marly) we hoofed it over to Musee' Pompidous . . . Wanna see some *modern* art . . . It was excruciatingly hot walking the streets, and even the museum seemed a little oven-y. . . I hope the art is ok . . . So much interesting art that it's like the burnout you get when you go to the grand canyon . . .ho-hum, another amazing vista . . . So many picassos . . . But we'd not seen the drollery with the mannish woman in a red dress before . . . Enjoyed several Modiglianis -- the bulk of them must be hidden away somewhere -- and the minor matisses . . . After seeing Harmony in Red at the Hermitage (Amsterdam), the rest all seem kinda watery and second rate, but we gritted our teeth and enjoyed them anyway . . . 8^D . . .
