|View from Pont-Neuf|
After breakfast I headed across the Seine from my hotel's district, Saint-Germain to the district known as Les Halles.
About a mile-walk later, I arrived at the Center Georges-Pompidou, a modern building (1977).
The CGP is a somewhat complicated building to navigate, but with some help from the information booth I was soon seeing art!
First I came across an exhibition of the work of Jim Dine, an American Pop artist. I was unfamiliar with the name, but soon became a fan of his art. This photo shows a seven-year old laughing at these painted figures. He especially appreciated the Mickey Mouse head.

Then it was on to my some of my favorites:
|I love his use of patterns.|
|This face is so simple and expressive!|
|This piece seems busy and contained for Kandinsky.|

|This sculpture is remarkable, exuding a darkness to the "Bride." I thought of Dicken's Miss Havisham.|
