Now I am wishing for an opportunity to go back to France, and visit Givenchy myself. I really enjoyed looking through the photostreams on Flickr, and I learned so much about Monet's personal life and relationships while researching for this article.
If any of you DO visit France, please make a point of visiting Rodin's home in Paris. It's been almost 20 years since I was there, and I can still see his sculptures in my mind, as if it were yesterday. It was one of the highlights of my trip there.
