Marie's presentation gave a great overview of the changes in French art from the Romanesque to the Renaissance. The stylistic changes were highlighted, as well as highlights from the Louvre. I can't wait to go to the Louvre and see the objects!
This is my second talk with Marie (but I've done dozens) and she is one of the very best. She knows history, art, architecture and human interest and ties it all together, in context. Her talks are always informative, interesting, in-depth and enjoyable. She is passionate about her field and it shows.
Every seminar led by Marie has been so full of information and enthusiasm.
Illuminating and generous - I loved every minute of this talk and look forward to the next one
Marie Dessaillen is my favorite Parisian tour guide, and her art, culture and history presentations are nothing short of amazing. She combines fun facts and fabulous art for an inspiring story of the French culture and history, alway with little hidden or unknown facts thrown in to make it all the more interesting.
