My favorite museums
The Louvre is for sure the most famous museum in Paris but there are some less visited places also worthwhile. I recommand you to visit Jacquemart-Andre museum which offers at the same time some fantastic Renaissance art pieces, furniture and decor dating back to the 18th century. This is one of the most marvellous mansions of Paris, where many receptions were made in the 19th century. Let me explain you the extraordinary life of Nelie Jacquemart who was one of the few female painters of the period. Rodin museum is also one of my favourite museum for its setting, its peaceful garden and the fantastic works done by one of the major sculptor of France. Camille Claudel, Rodin’ student and lover was an excellent artist too. Get a specific tour related with these exceptional women in both museums. And last but not least, the Musee d’Orsay where women are so often represented.
