Photographer's Note

Here's another picture from our visit to the Fondation Pinault in the old Bourse in Paris.

---

THE BOURSE DE COMMERCE is an 18th century historical building in the heart of Paris. It was used for trading and moneymaking until the end of last century.

THE FONDATION PINAULT now houses here. Just like the Fondation Vuiton, this is a private art enterprise. The Pinault collection focusses on living and contemporary art. It has just opened and currently stages its first show. Needless to say it is a bit of an arty hot spot in Paris these days. To be honest, the building impressed us more than most of the art on show.

THIS PICTURE shows the grand dome of the Bourse with a part of the beautifully restored mural below. A line of subtle lighting underneath the ledge of the first floor roundway is the eyelid.
