Work on the church of St-Suplice, at one time Paris's largest, began in 1646, but is stilll ongoing. It has one of the world's largest organs, comprising 6,700 pipes. The Chapelle des Anges (Chapel of the Angel) has two frescoes by Delacroix which were painted in Delacroixs final years and were a high point in his career. Outside the Church is a large square with the 1844 fountain by Visconti at its center. It is the location of the annual Foire de Saint-German held at the beginning of June and which lasts for a month. This fair has been an annual tradition for centuries.
Jardin du Luxembourg
Jardin du Luxembourg is the most loved park in Paris. It is large and has fountains, flowers, statues, tennis courts, concerts in the summer and on Sunday, Tai Chi. Within the park is located the Palais du Luxembourg, home to the French Senate. Next to the senate is the Musee du Luxembourg, which often has art exhibitions. Nearby on rue de Fleurus lived Gertrude Stein and her companion Alice B. Tokas who opened their home to many famous expatriates, writers and artists, including Hemingway and Picasso.
In rue de Babylone stands a japanese pagoda built in 1895 by the founder of the Bon Marche department store as a gift for his wife. In 1931 it became a cinema and cafe where silent screen stars such as Gloria Swanson would like to go. In 1998 it closed due to a lack of fund to maintain it, but happily it has been renovated and re-opened as a cinema, still with its cafe.
St-Germain was a center of bohemianism and existentialism in the glittering café society of the post-war years. Names associated with this period are Sartre and Camus and the singer Juliette Greco. Young French teenagers spent nights in its jazz clubs and cabarets. Many famous French singers sang in the clubs or lived in the area, such as Georges Brassens, Jacques Brel, Charles Trénet, Guy Béart, Charles Aznavour. The home where Serge Gainsbourgh lived on rue de Verneuil has become a graffitied shrine. Jazz greats who played here include Sidney Bechet, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington.
Rue du Bac
Rue du Bac has many historic connections. It was built in 1564 and named after the bac (ferry) that used to transport quarry stone across the Seine to the construction site of the Tuileries Palace, which was actually burnt down by the Communards in 1871. On the 6th arron. side of rue du Bac were the barracks that housed the Musketeers - of The Three Musketeers fame. On the 7th arron. side of rue du Bac is Deyrolle, a 150 years old taxidermy shop open to the public, which besides the stuffed animals, is like a grand Cabinet des Curiosities with shells, minerals, insects, butterflies, pictures all on view.
Musee Rodin housed in the magnificent Hotel Biron. August Rodin originally rented rooms in the Hotel for living and as a studio. There were plans to destroy the house but in 1916 the French government agreed to convert it into a museum for him. The museum now houses his sculptures, academic paintings and sketches. There are also several works by Camille Claudel, the talented sculptor who became Rodins muse, model, and lover at the age of 17. He was nearly 50. The lovely garden is a setting for some of Rodins best known works including The Thinker, The Burghers of Calais, and The Gates of Hell.
Across the river from the Louvre, was originally a Beaux-Arts train station but by the 1950's its platforms became too short and it was up for demolition. An innovative restoration transformed the train station into a museum spanning art from 1830 to 1914. Its sky-lit Impressionist Gallery holds the jewels of Impressionist Art with masterpieces by Monet, Degas, Renoir, Pissaro and Van Gogh. Next to the gallery there is a cafe built to incorporate one of the two original giant clocks of the station, with a balcony (open in the summer) and lovely view over the Seine. The other restaurant is the more formal Restaurant du , which was the dining room of the old hotel in the station and is an ornately gilded period piece. Its buffet brunch or prix-fixe menu is good value. Museum closed on Mondays. National Museums as the Louvre are closed on Tuesdays and Paris Museums as the dOrsay are closed on Mondays.
