Garnier's Paris Opera Impressionist Painting Heidi Malott


"Visiting the Paris Opera Garnier"
6x6" oil on gesso panel

First, I must thank my dear cousin, Mary Kay, for sharing photos of her recent travels to France.  When my youngest has flown from the nest I plan to travel to Europe and paint to my heart's content.  

This amazing opera house was built in 1860.  One of my favorite artists, Degas, found his inspiration here for his stunning ballet paintings.  If you get a chance, check out an image of this opera house, it is breathtaking.  Here, I chose to focus on a more intimate image of a tourist on the steps of  The Paris Opera.
