The Place de Furstenberg...a serene spot amid the bustling streets of Saint Germain.
And tucked into a corner of the square...a romantic archway leading to a secluded courtyard.
A hidden gem...the Musée Delacroix, where the artist lived and worked from 1857 until his death in 1863.
After a tour of his apartment, we headed out back to his studio overlooking a charming garden.
Lit by a soaring window and skylight, even on the cloudy day we visited, his studio was full of light.
The artist's easel.
Often called the "master of color," his vibrant pigments still evident on his palette.
His work showcased throughout his studio.
As well as works by his cousin, Leon Riesener.
Overlooking the courtyard garden below.
Only the bulbs and a single cherry tree were able to break through the brisk April day.
Descending back into the city, daydreaming about another artist and his garden.
Delacroix the perfect precursor to our next day's stop...Claude Monet's studio and garden at Giverny. Romanticism to Impressionism.
