Day Nine - Dijon - Musee Magnin
This morning, I visited the Musee Magnin. Just blocks away from my apartment, this family townhouse and art collection of over 2,000 pieces was bequeathed to the state in 1937 by the grandchildren of the original Magnin owner. A brother and sister, they became avid art collectors as adults. The museum is stunning, two stories tall with a courtyard in the middle.
You'll notice plastic thistles on the furniture, which is a way of saying "don't sit here!"
And, finally, here is Monique, who works at the gallery. She is married to an American and they spend time in both Colorado and France. Thank you for your hospitality, Monique
