Deyrolle 181 Year Old Taxidermy Store in Paris

Deyrolle 46 rue de Bac Paris 7th arrondisment

Many people are opposed to taxidermy. I feel kind of ambivalent about it. All I know is that as an artist, I find it incredibly inspiring. All the colors and expressions. The animals stand still as if to pose for my painting.

Paleontology and it’s grand era are a great source of fascination and ideas.

Deyrolle is a beautiful shop and you just want to stay a while, maybe have a cup of tea and fill a sketchbook. If you’re ever in Paris, you should go check it out.
