    J’espere que votre “truc chiant” est parti et que vous etes en grande forme.

    Que deviens Williams, fait-il du Tennis ?

  2. Catherine Delors says:

    Well, for L’origine du monde, the title is self-explanatory. I think Courbet was engaging in a bit of provocation…

    Wow, Marie-Helene, I am impressed by the level of detail. I could only have told you it was on the upper floor… I hope you had a great Thanksgiving too!

    Happy thanks giving to you, Catherine.

    Lezlie – I hope you had a great holiday too!

    Danielle – No, this is a GoDaddy blog, but I believe every platform has a knack for driving us poor bloggers crazy. Speak of fixing what ain’t broke.

    Sandra – Who knows where life is taking me… I am delighted to hear you love these white turkeys!

  7. I love the visuals you include in your blog, Catherine, as well as the research. (I wish I could lure you into the 17th century court of the Sun King.)

    I’ve started reading Mistress of the Revolution: I love it.

    I was thinking perhaps you had a Typepad blog, in which case I was going to say I can sympathize! Typepad just changed their platform, which came as a surprise to me, and has caused me no end of annoyances. I feel like it’s gotten worse rather than been improved! Don’t you hate it when they try and fix things that weren’s broke? Lovely painting, however!

  9. Lezlie says:

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

    Isn’t it beautiful? One of my favorites at Orsay. And this Chateau and its owner have a most interesting history. All for another post… I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
