Last week while on a Paris bus we saw a long line of people on rue de Vaugirard waiting to get into the Musée du Luxembourg and looked on the Internet to see what that was about. This morning (Sunday) we went there at aboutt 11:00--no line at all--and paid 11€ each, plus 4€ for an English-language audio guide to visit a very extensive exhibition of Marc Chagall's paintings, with a few etchings/litho graphs as well. The exhibition is organized around periods of his life that influenced the content and form of his work, such as eight years trapped in Russia, displacement during WW2, the death of his wife Bella, etc. It was a very worthwhile museum visit. It is due to close in about five weeks, but we have noticed many exhibitions get extended if they are still attracting audiences.
