Some of my favorite small details from the Ingres Museum in Montauban, France. Housed in a seventeenth century palace, the Musee Ingres is filled with a collection of artworks and artifacts related to Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres 1780-1867. The museum served as a temporary hiding place for the Mona Lisa during World War ll. Kick, Molly and I spent a rainy day at the museum this past summer and felt as if we were living in the past - it has an enormous basement chamber, three flights underground, that dates back to the 15th century. Only in France.
