Lower Sixth Students Enjoy Art Trip To Paris

Monday 3rd February 2014

On Friday 24 January to Sunday 26 January, the Sixth Form Art, Art History and Photography students visited Paris for three days of visits to galleries, building and monuments. Mrs Sandra Smith, History of Art Teacher, has put together a small write-up of the trip:

“The trip began with an early start and a snooze on the Eurostar before arriving at our hostel near Gare du Nord.  Friday afternoon involved a pilgrimage to the Louvre with the obligatory glimpse of the Mona Lisa over the heads of thousands of people and then a more leisurely look at some of the works being studied at A Level, including the startling Raft of the Medusa by Gericault and Liberty Leading the People by Delacroix.  We also visited Notre Dame and walked along the banks of the Seine, followed by a hike home for dinner through Paris.

On Saturday we visited Monet’s spectacular Water Lily panels at the Orangerie; the panels were painted as a memorial to those who died in the Great War and then we visited the Musee d’Orsay where we enjoyed the work of Manet, Rodin and the Impressionists. On Saturday afternoon, an intrepid group climbed to the second tier of the Eiffel Tower to take in the view which afforded some great photo opportunities, which was then followed by some hectic shopping on the Rue de Rivoli.  The evening was capped by enjoying a French dinner of escargots (for the brave), steak and crème brulee.

Despite exhaustion, heavy rain and sore feet, we visited the national collection of Modern Art at the Pompidou Centre on Sunday.  The trip home involved more snoozing on the train and a hike across London to catch our train back to Queen Anne’s.”
