I had a really nice long weekend in Paris. The weather was fantastic, so were the exhibitions I visited. New paintings from Georg Baselitz in Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac: fabulous! Shiota in Gallerie Templon: magnificent! Kiefer in Musée Rodin: good. Because images say more then words, the summary of a few days Paris in “a few” ;-) pictures. With some explanation.
