Our evening at Musee Rodin also included a walk through the former Hotel Biron which had been where artists like Rodin, Cocteau, and Matisse had workshops. That offered a different perspective on the garden.

This last one is Victor Hugo.
I did not mention this building that comes into view from different parts of the garden

It is Les Invalides where Napoleon’s grave is.
By this point in our trip I was totally in love with the Paris Metro system. When we got out at the Varenne metro station in order to get to the museum on the platform were reproductions of the Thinker and Monument to Balzac
