Hôtels Paris Rive Gauche has some nice shots of the frescos Josep Maria Sert created at the Musée Carnavalet, as well as some interesting historical facts about the artist.
The story of this Barcelona-born artist’s life is definitely worth finding out more about. For example, you may not know that his work also adorns the Rockefeller Center in New York!
Specialising in huge fresques, his name isn’t that well known, and yet in his time he was commissioned for work in prestigious buildings in New York, Barcelona, Geneva… and Paris, where his red and silver brushwork is all over a giant room – including the ceiling – that is now part of the Carnavalet museum.
There will be an exhibition dedicated to Josep Maria Sert at the Petit Palais from March 8 – July 8, 2012
