Just back from an inspiring trip to the South of france via Amsterdam.
It's been an age since I've looked at Van Gogh, Rembrandt Frans Hals and Vermeer's magnificent work to mention only the better known names, and a first for my wife, Mary who was reduced to an emotional state by the experience.

Then a week or so later, in the South of France, it was a surprise to find that the bulk of Lautrec's better known paintings are housed in an enormous castle-like museum in the town of Albi. There was also a small collection of sculpture, more or less contemporary with the time including a figure by Malliol. near Arles there is even a reconstruction of the famous canal bridge that features in the wonderful painting by Van Gogh.

This was all we could fit in this year, but well worth the trip.
