Meet Me at The Cluny Museum Tomorrow!

On my magical world tour, all the places I visit are open for business. I am happy to put up with long lines, large crowds that block my view of art objects, and spending more money than I should, because the world has so many natural beauties and works of art to explore and enjoy. So, let’s begin. I am in Paris for another day. Second on my list (Wasn’t the Louvre great?) to visit is the Musee de Cluny, a short walk from the Louvre. It is a museum that highlights the medieval period of France. The most impressive object in the museum’s collection is the Lady and the Unicorna tapestry woven in 1511. There are other works of art that I could view, and this list will be helpful for my tour. The “current” exhibit is centered on “objects that offer glimpses into how people in medieval society spent their hours and days.” This may be an interesting topic to contemplate in Spring 2020. Don’t forget to use our MVCC databases to help you better understand the people and art of the Middle Ages.

After you view the tapestry, you may want to read the novel The Lady and the Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier Unfortunately, it is not available on Hoopla. Here is a review of the novel and links to the availability of the novel.
