Merry Christmas!

The past week has left me little time for posting, between extra work to be completed at the office before year end, research on my third novel and, last but not least, the school break. Now I will be heading for Tours and Bordeaux for a family reunion to celebrate the holiday season.

So I will have to be content to refer you to last year’s Il est né le Divin Enfant, George Sand’s memories of the Père Noël and the true Saint Nicholas.

After the intimist Nativité by Boucher, I would like to share this beautiful work by Charles Le Brun, one of Louis XIV’s favorite artists and the foremost painter of the Sun King’s Versailles, as a way to offer my heartfelt thanks for visiting here, and my best holiday wishes.

Merry Christmas!
