Baudelaire and Aesthetic Curiosities

Musée de la vie romantique (Museum of romantic life) in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, resting the confines of the infamous neighborhood of Pigalle, exhibits artists of the 19th century artistic movement of romanticism. Besides its exhibitions, it has a pretty garden, hidden away from the commotion of the restless capital. And most important of all, it is hosting an exhibition on Baudelaire and the art of his time.
