François 1er et l'Art des Pays Bas at the Louvre, Paris 1er

Information on François and his links to Dutch art was modest, as opposed to the religious artworks which were presented in abundance. The Dutch art exhibited was not always top-notch, although admittedly many of the lesser paintings of the Golden Age are still masterpieces.

In all, this was interesting and beautiful yet a bit frustrating, as it was also clearly not as fascinating as it could / should / would have been. (Wonder at the difficulty of applying that low-expectations principle, which would save me from a lot of disappointment...)
