|Pyramide du Louvre - Nigel, Karen and Jean-Charles|
The route we took allowed us to notice that many Parisian places share classicism and modernity with harmony. For instance, in the Louvre district, we appreciated how the pyramid of the Louvre was designed to respect the environment of the surrounding classic buildings.
Not so far, in the Palais Royal, we saw the Columns of Buren, another example of modern art integrating a classical environment (there was a strong controversy at the time of its creation but, in Paris Running Tour, we like this combination...)
Going through a passage in the Louvre to go to the Palais Royal, we had the opportunity to see rooms of the Louvre presenting another mix of modern art and classic art: the temporary exhibition of Tony Cragg, who had juxtaposed his modern sculptures to the classic ones.
Merci Karen and Nigel!
