Galerie C. T. Loo and Company


Located near the Parc Monceau in the 8th, this fine example of classic Asian architecture housed the sales room and collection of Asian art scholar C.T. Loo. It closed in 2007 for renovation.

You'll be pleased to know that it's 11h00 and it is snowing in Paris.....again. We met Peter yesterday and spent several hours chatting, first in the brasserie Fontaine Sully, then in our apartment.

Shsh,
It was fun seeing this. Very unusual to see in Paris I think!

My girlfriend and I came upon this place in 2002 as we were wondering around trying to find the Jacquemart-Andre museum. This building certainly catches one's attention.

Your capture of the colors is wonderful. And thanks for another trip down memory lane.
