On our walk to Bon Marche Monday, we came across a wonderful shop that sells original art work, one of a kind pieces by artists. The concept was fabulous. The work is in four different sizes only, all square format, and four different prices based on size. They sell frames for them if you want the work framed. There was a wide variety of styles. We were attracted to the non-figurative collages, of course. All of the work was quite good, nothing looked "commercial" or mass produced. I thnk I'm making a plug for them, but anything that makes art accessible, and is a way for artists to sell their work, is great. And if you are in Paris, and want to buy art, this is original work at affordable prices. By the way, the Paris shop is at 66, rue Saint Andre des Arts, which is a pretty nice little street to explore. They have a web site, check them out: www.carredartistes.com.
