NEWS IN ART
On my way to the center of Paris, I saw the Musée Jacquemart-André teasing a really tempting exhibition showcasing Rubens, Poussin and other masters from their century. This exhibition gathers around sixty paintings, so it’s rather small, from both private and public collections across Europe. It certainly offers a unique view of two great artistic movements of the 17th century: Flemish Baroque painting, of which Rubens is the best reprentative, and the French Classical school led by Nicolas Poussin and highlights the influence they had on each other. I have the firm intention to pay a visit soon so if someone has any feedback, I’d be glad to read some in the comments!

So I had no choice but spend a few hours again to find the site and eventually, I found it : http://enthusiasmdocumented.tumblr.com. You’ll see by yourself that the choice of pictures is amazing and very (very) rich. Definitely a blog to check. I don’t even know why I am buying magazines with all these great blogs around the web!
