While meeting some friends to see their latest work at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, my natural sense of direction seemed to wear off as I found myself lost inside the school. I flâneur’d about until I stumbled into a sculpture room with some works in progress. The room was beautiful, remarkably peaceful, and only a tiny bit creepy. I had the place all to myself, so I took the opportunity to take some photos.
Open for 350 years and counting, the legendary École des Beaux-Arts counts Mary Cassat, Jacques-Louis David, Edgar Degas, Eugene Delacroix, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, John Russell Pope, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, Annette Messager, Hubert de Givenchy, and Valentino as alumni. No big deal.
The first room I wandered into.
And the sculpture room.
After that, I found them.
