Around the World: France

“I do not believe there is another city on earth so beautiful as Paris nor another people with such an appreciation of the beautiful as the French…”

Edward Hopper

 

We celebrate la belle France this week – the country that embodies culture and sophistication, AND produces over 350 types of cheese!

Take a look at the abundance of work from the great French masters, the cultural icons, fashion and just a few of the great French collections that we represent, among other hand-selected lightboxes.
